Label: Matchless Quality Pencil Erasers, ElVin, NY
Box measures 7" long x 4 3/4" wide x 4" high
Each chalk is 3 1/8" long

Excellent vintage condition. Some soiling and typical damage to the box. This is shelfware. Erasers are deadstock and unused.
(Note: This is not the actual item shown in the photos, which was sold... but it's the same item, box and erasers. The box has typical wear and side flaps have split at corners on the box top but are taped inside and still attached.)

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!!
