An antique porcelain toothpick holder showing a blown tulip design around the rim. The front tulips have been hand painted blue and yellow. There is a scalloped rim and molded feet on the bottom.
Although this unmarked, we believe this to be of German origin possibly Prussia. The porcelain is very fine and there is a mold mark on the bottom which is typical with early pieces prior to 1898.
Measuring 2.25" high we find this in outstanding antique condition without chips, cracks or bites.
