This toothpick holder takes the form of a top hat. It is very well made and quite detailed as to texture. It also has a ribbon at the bottom ob the hat. marked as made by James W Tufts 4142.



This figural toothpick holder has a Palmer Cox Brownie figure standing next to a toothpick holder on a decoarted raised base.
It is not marked as to maker or number but is authentic as the details is very good. It looks like there may be a makers mark underneath but I am not sure. My guess is that it was made by Pairpoint Nfg. Co. see similar item below.





2 x This Palmer Cox Brownie figural toothpick holder is very similar to the one above,
except that the toothpick holder is in the shape of a broken egg and the palmer Cox Brownie is holding a rifle on his shoulder.
Marked Pairpoint Mfg. Co. 3756.


This is a lovely Palmer Cox Brownie figural toothpick holder, where the toothpicks go
into an umbrella with the Brownie underneath sheltering from the rain.
It is marked Pairpoint Mfg. Co. 3758 (or 3753).




This is a fantastic Palmer Cox Brownie figural toothpick holder, where the toothpicks go

It is marked Pairpoint Mfg. Co. 3760.





A fabulous toothpick hlder in the shape of a jug. Made by Jenning Brothers (hallmark JB # 1054). Jenning Brothers's work is featured in the book "American Figural Napkin Rings" by Gottschalk & Whitson. This is a very solid piece in excellent condition.


This is a most unusual rather large Tufts toothpick holder, with 2 large leaves forming the base and branches and trigs above with a toothpick holder basket woven out of trigs and vines. Marked James W Tufts 3284.  This is an extremely rare piece.


This is another fabulous Toothpick or match holder made by James W Tufts in the form of a camp fire with a pot hanging from a a stick support above. It has the pattern number 2623 next to the Tufts logo. It also has the number 39 stamped on the opposite side on the base (might be the pattern number of the pot). It is in near mint condition with a nice dark patina there are not any signs that it was used as a match holder as there is no wear where the matches might have been struck, so I am assuming it was made as a toothpick holder. It may have been made as a match holder and never used though. Like I said before it is in mint condition.  To my mind, it makes more sense if it was a match holder, with the campfire etc., but who knows.



This figural toothpick holder has a bucket swinging on wooden side supports.
Marked as made by WMF. Very detailed.



This toothpick holder is alos of the pot over a campfire style. It is not marked. I do not think the chain is original. My guess is that it was hung by a stiff wire with a hook at either end. It is not marked as to maker or numbered, but the detail and aging confirms it is a genuine Victorian piece.
The cauldron in the above may be missing its 3 legs, but I have a spare cauldron (see below.)

This toothpick holder sits on a pedestal on a leaf base. Unmarked. Looking at this closely it looks like a napkin ring was soldered to the rest of the base to make a toothpick holder. This seems to have been a quite common practice where a napkin ring was turned into a more useful toothpick holder probably in the early 1900s. If this is the case, I wonder what the base was?
