History


Imperial Crayon Co. was founded in Aug 1935 by Jack Rubenstein and was located in Brooklyn at 174 Ave.  Despite many surviving examples of their crayon products, there is very little history to be found for Imperial Crayon.  They were one of many crayon companies that sprung up in Brooklyn, NY back during the golden age of crayon manufacturing.  At some point they moved to 649 Lexington Ave.  Scant records seem to indicate they probably closed their doors or were bought out sometime in the 1960s.
