Contemporary Carnival Glass Toothpick Holders
Very few toothpick holders were made during the classic Carnival Glass era. But a lot were made from the 1960s onward. The examples shown below are all contemporary. Many sell in the $10 the $15 range--though a few are very desirable and bring quite a bit more, particularly those by Hansen. Some colors are listed below, but each toothpick holder is probably found in other colors as well.
