I’ve found myself with a collection of unusual toothpick holders, most of which are about a hundred years old. They were used in fine hotels and restaurants in the very early 20th century. As tiny as they are, they would fit easily into a pocket or handbag and were probably partly intended to advertise their establishments, all the while making the scofflaws feel like they’d gotten away with something!
This tan-bodied toothpick holder was made by Anfora in Mexico for the Hotel Santa Anita, still in business.
The piece is 3 ½” long by 1 3/8” deep by 1 5/8” high. Condition is excellent.
