Crayola Product Line by Year

 

 

Previous Year                                                                                                                     Next Year

 

                                                                                    1941

 

1941 Crayolet goes through some changes this year with some design changes and a box no longer in the lineup.

Besco is introduced as a 10-B for the first time.  The Crayola No 88 tin goes through yet another design change that

set up the beginning of the end for the art deco border design on most boxes.  By 1945 that design will be all

but gone.
