More finds from mom’s attic. These are 12 permanent, waterproof markers but Eberhard Faber Inc., Crestwood, Wilkes-Barre, PA. Advertised to be used on needlepoint and crewel canvas. And, the set sold for $12. Amazing but the are not bone dry. They moved most of the operations from NYC area to Pennsylvania around 1956  and the Newark, NJ facility closed by 1963. They have been bought several times and are now part of the Paper Mate brand.

 

Interesting directions. I’m not sure applying one over top of the next would get such a great color.
