This antique toothpick, or matchstick holder was designed by James W. Tufts (1835-1902), who was both the founder of Pinehurst, North Carolina, and an entrepreneur, who ran a successful business in the design and manufacture of silver plate tableware. This wonderful piece is made up of a combination of a cup-shaped holder, exquisitely decorated with a profusion of repousse flowers, and a figural sporting dog positioned along its side. The cup is 2 1/2" tall x 2" in diameter, and the dog is 2" tall x 3" long. The entire piece is in excellent condition with the exception of a small dent on the top edge of the holder. It is clearly marked JAMES W. TUFTS BOSTON Warranted Quadrupleplate , and numbered 3416. As well as being a highly collectible antique, this wonderful piece can be re-purposed in so many ways. On a desk, to a vanity, or on a formal dining table, it will surely be a wonderfully unique and special addition to your home.
