Souvenir items were very popular during the late 1800's and early 1900's to commemorate events, people and places. Many small towns and large cities across America had souvenir items made for specific events, famous residents, interesting places and grand architectural buildings for residents of the area and tourists to purchase, collect and enjoy. Most of these items were created in European factories for export to the American market.

I have six pieces that were made for Dixon, IL, a town in rural Northern, IL and county seat of Lee County. This wonderful porcelain toothpick holder/miniature vase is decorated with cobalt blue enamel exterior with gold highlights and features a cartouche picturing a transfer image of a library building and the inscription "Public Library Dixon, IL". The toothpick holder measures 3 1/2" in length, 2" in height and is stamped on the base "Wheelock Dresden Germany". There are no cracks chips or repairs.
