These small, vintage sterling silver toothpick holders are decorated with a repousse rim of flower and fruit clusters with a scalloped edge in the Francis I pattern. They could also be used as small bud vases. The Francis I pattern was first designed in the Renaissance-Baroque Revival style by Ernest Meyers for Reed and Barton in 1908.
