Crayola Product Line by Year

                                                                                    1919

 

1919 – The Gold Medal line drops the Paris reference.  Durel has some changes as well.  This also marks the debut

of the hinged metal tin used for a number of product lines.  These generic tins were sometimes referred to as Crayola

No 88 but were also used for other lines such as Cerata, Boton, and Durel.  Since they were generically designed, it

was simply a matter of putting the other crayons in them and then selling them as another alternative product choice

to the paper box.  I’ve also included a box I’m not sure what it is but the design fits this particular age group so I’ll

go ahead and list it anyway.
