METAL WOODPECKER TOOTHPICK HOLDER DISPENSER 1938 in box
- Source: eBay
This is a great mechanical toothpick holder dispenser distributed by the S. & S. Sales Co., Portland, Oregon in 1937 or 1938. Patent Number D-151773. It is red, black & white. It has the original colored wooden toothpicks in the gold colored metal log with the original tissue paper covering them. On the top of his head and on the tail the paint has been rubbed off from being in the box but otherwise he is perfect. The box on the other hand is rough with a tear on one end. Please look at my photos carefully to see condition of bird and box. The one photo with the scrape marks shows a white reflection on his face. This is not damage. As well as the wodpecker being a great knick knack or useful item, the box also is a great display item.Shipping and ins. I almost always ship priority mail with insurance and delivery confirmation. I feel this is the safest method of shipping. Thank you for looking and bidding.
