An antique glass toothpick featuring ruby stand at the top half. This has a nicely detailed pattern on the bottom. The ruby stand is etched with Export Expo 1899 which was held in Philadephia, PA that year. A souvenir piece from that event.
Manufactured by Tarentum Glass in their Columbia pattern which was made that same year c. 1899.
Measuring 2.25" tall we find a few specks of missing stain. This does not have a name engraved on it which was typical for souvenir items. We do not find any damage to glass.
