Joseph Dixon (1799-1869) was the founder of the company. The company is best known for the manufacturing of leaded pencils. They also produced a limited line of crayons for schools, studios, and drafting rooms. Not many of the crayon tins such as this example exist today. As the photograph shows the tin now has older crayons but they are not original. Over time the tin was used to hold children’s crayons.
The tin is in good vintage conditions with minor wear. Please review the photographs. The tin measures 3 ¾ inches by 2 ¾ inches and has a depth of around ½ inches. Not many of the tins were made and even fewer are available today. This is a great vintage tin box and would display well in your home or office. Enjoy!
