                                                                A massive find, right in our basement! It turns out the Eberhard-Faber crayon boxes we've had for a while are valuable. Because they are marked "New York" at the top and Eberhard-Faber was only in New York for a certain number of years, they can be dated to 1910 to 1920.  That's antique in anyone's book.  They have dovetailed (finger-jointed) sides, and the lid slips off.  At one point these held crayons, but no more.  They are available at our Etsy sister site, Fiona Dorothy.  Click here to see these nice boxes.
