Rubens Crayola No. 18 by K Henderson
Rubens Crayola No. 18, 18 x 24, oil on cradled board
have a few boxes of Rubens Crayola and this one is the oldest. Although I
don't know the exact date of this box, the Rubens No. 18 (my box only
has 17 crayolas) first came out in 1905.
The Rubens Crayola line, started in 1903 was directly targeted at artists and designed to compete with the Raphael brand of crayons from Europe.
love the picture of Peter Paul Rubens and the filigree. The paper wrap
on each crayon also has the word 'Rubens' and the face of Ruben
although he is facing towards the right instead of the left as on the
box. These vintage crayons are over 100 years old and in great shape.
