Place of Origin

Maker Rosebud Art Company

Maker Details In 1923 Isidor Rosen founded a small business called Rosebud Art Company in the Bronx, New York, that printed and produced coloring books. During the 1930s, the company changed its product offering to focus on games and puzzles. Two decades after its founding, the company was run by Isidor's sons Irving and Sydney. During Irving and Sydney's tenure as company heads, Rose Art diversified its product offerings to include novelties, American flags, and art and school supplies. By the late 1970s, the company's name had changed to Rose Art Industries. In 1978 the third generation of the Rosen family--Sydney's sons Jeffrey and Lawrence--became active in the company. Rose Art focused on the manufacture of arts and crafts supplies, including crayons, paints, and chalks. That year annual sales reached $850,000. In the late 1970s Rose Art moved to Passaic, New Jersey, across the river from New York's Manhattan.
