1950s Vintage Crystal Trumpeted Toothpick Holder

1950s Vintage Crystal Trumpeted Toothpick Holder


This 1950s leaded crystal glass toothpick holder bears the simplistic, classic aesthetic of the mid century traditionalist taste. This small vessel is palm-sized, yet quite heavy, indicating its content and quality. It would have been placed barside to hold toothpicks with which to serve finger foods during a cocktail party or on a sideboard from which to self-serve hors d'oeuvres during a dinner party. While a little less popularly used today, this convenient item is perfect for special occasions such as bridal and baby showers, wedding showers, and even as part of a set for a wedding reception cocktail hour. This holder’s size and shape are also ideal for holding your favorite flower clippings, and its weight allows it to stand sturdily without fear of tipping, as might be the case with other tiny vessels. As shown, it may also be used for hair forks, hairpins, bobby pins, hat pins and the like.
