Here is an unusual, lovely little 19th century German toothpick holder, cylindrical, hand painted with flowers, a red and a yellow rose and others. It is lined at top and bottom with painted maroon bands; these are lined at top and bottom with gold enamel. The rim is unglazed; underside is partially glazed, incised with number 60; initials L.B. also inked under the glaze. There’s an area of gold ink or enamel, mostly rubbed off, which shows letters “any” which we think once said Germany. We think this is a German piece dating to the end of the 19th century, and that it was originally lined at the rim with a narrow band of metal or wood. Whatever the case, it is still pretty, and will make a unique addition to your collection of toothpick holders.
