This little gem has graced our cabinets for over forty five years and has been one of our most prized pieces. Our example has a square rim, a lovely satiny finish with pastel rainbow colors and white cased interior. The attached handle is free of heat checks, cracks or other issues.
The toothpick holder has its original fire annealed rim and a polished pontil on the bottom. There are a few tiny closed bubbles, tool marks and dark specks inside the bottom that are visible in our photographs, but all occurred during the manufacture process that was normal during the period when it was made. No maker's mark or signatures were noted. Please take the time to carefully examine all the photographs for more details.The toothpick holder stands approximately 2-3/4 in height. It measures approximately 3-1/2 from the back of the handle to the opposite corner. Side to side (corner to corner of rim) it measures approximately 3 across. The piece weighs approximately 6.2 ounces.
All measurements are approximate, but close. We carefully examined this item.NO Chips, Cracks, Bruises, Nicks, Scratches, Repairs or Restorations were noted. There are minor tool marks, tiny closed bubbles on the exterior surfaces and dark specks inside the bottom that occurred during the original manufacturing of this item.
