Tooth Pick Holder

Toothpicks.  Whether you use them to pick up an appetizer, test the doneness of a cake, or clean your teeth, these handy little devices are used worldwide

But in 1869 a wooden toothpick-making machine was invented and Charles Forster, a marketing genius, acquired rights to the patent.

Once machine-made toothpicks became widely available in the mid-1800’s the need for a “holder” arose, and before too long hundreds of toothpick holders, in all sorts of colours and shapes came on the market.
