We believe this sweet little piece of American Brilliant Cut Glass is a toothpick, although it may also have been made to hold a spoon. It features three applied handles, with cut columns between the handles. The edges of the columns are notched and beaded in intricate patterns. The three handles have shallow bull’s eyes cut along the outer edge. The base is cut into a star.

The rim is sterling silver, with beadwork along the bottom edge. Initials are engraved in the top inside; they appear to be M L (although it is a little difficult to determine). The silver is marked “STERLING” followed by the Wilcox Silver Plate company hallmark. There is no mark on the glass, and we’ve not been able to identify the glass cutting company.

This comes from the estate of Phil’s mom, who was a passionate collector of American Brilliant cut glass and other fine art glass.

SIZE: Diameter at the base is 1 3/4” and at the top is 2 1/8”. Height is just under 2 7/8”.
