What a wonderful box of large yellow crayons! These were made by the American Crayon Co. They are called "The Old Faithful Crayons" and there is a drawing of Old Faithful geyser from Yellowstone on the front. Date on the front shows the company was established in 1835 in Sandusky, Ohio. It also shows "New York" and "Made in U.S.A." on the front of the box.
The box is in wonderful condition. When new, the box held 12 yellow crayons, it now has 9 unused crayons and one yellow crayon that wasn't originally from this set. It's from the "Joseph Dixon Crucible Company".
Not sure of the date when these were made. Very early. I'm guessing from the 1920s or before. There is a warning on the box that these crayons contain lead chromate and are NOT for children.
