Original Box of 12 Crayons Günther Wagner Pelikan
$19.00 USD $22.00 USD
Original new old stock German crayons, ölkreiden. Made by Günther Wagner Pelikan. "Rund Gespitzt giftfrei." Round, pointy, and poison free! (They are not pointed, despite what the box says). Box contains 12 crayons. It measures about 3" by 3".
Crayons were used for a lot beyond school and were part of many map cases and were important for making reports and drawing maps which were frequently color coded. Original crayons are rather hard to find and these are from one of the better, more well known, makers. All are in good condition some have some wear. A few of the crayons may be broken or some may be a little stuck together. Its just amazing they still exist.
