Toothpick holders or simply "Toothpicks" as they are called by collectors, first appeared in the 1880's in America and only to continue in vogue until about 1920. The fad only lasted so long as it was polite to pick one's teeth in public. The holders for the tiny little wood slivers were made from china, wood, metal and many other materials. The Atlanta Antique Gallery carries a large selection of various "toothpicks" and " toothpick holders".
