Find-A-Crayon: Wooden Boxes

The dovetailed wooden chalk box is a good sub category to collect.  There are only a small finite number of examples and virtually all of them are easy to obtain.  These boxes go clear back to the mid 1800s and through to at least the 1950s.  There are also a number of companies that are not represented in the crayon section.  The boxes are either engraved into the wood or they have paper labels on the ends.  The wooden lid slides off the end of the box to access the chalk.
