A Survey of Contemporary Toothpick Holders
Very few toothpick holders were made during the classic Carnival Glass era. But a lot were made from the 1960s onward. The examples shown below are all contemporary. Many sell in the $10 the $15 range--though a few are very desirable and bring quite a bit more. Still, a group of these can make a very interesting collection.
