Box measures 7" long x 4 3/4" wide x 4" high

Excellent vintage condition. Some typical damage to the paper and some chalks are snapped into more than one piece but most look just fine. The box looks full and it's "one gross" but I haven't counted the chalk and can't guarantee that it's exactly one gross.

I always offer combined shipping.

Note: Most of the hardware & salvage items I'm listing came from an amazing hardware surplus store in lower Manhattan called Alexander's Hardware. It was a legendary 4 story warehouse full of the most extraordinary collection of antique hardware and bits and pieces of the strangest surplus stuff. Along with hundreds of NYC artists, I was friends with Arty, the wonderful wonderful owner and spent many an hour combing through his warehouse for these items, many of which I've used in my work. I feel certain that Arty would enjoy knowing I am passing these treasures along to other artists. He was as special as all his special odd and curious things and he is greatly missed. A tip of the hat to you, Dear Artie!!
