Tarentum Glass Company Dalton toothpick holder:  some gold remaining on top of holder. This is a difficult pattern to find.


The pattern is also shown on page 177 of the Bredehoft Second Edition book and listed there as having a value of $40. I have priced this toothpick holder considerably under that price as I bought it very reasonably. 


It stands 2 1/2 inches tall x 2 1/4 inches wides.  This holder is in excellent condition. There is still some gold decoration on the top rim

Red mark. This is the very one pictured in the book, Toothpick Holders: China, Glass & Metal, listed as H4 #487.  Made by well-known Californian glass artist David Salazar, this contemporary art glass toothpick holder is one of the few David made that is based on his well-known marble and paperweight techniques.


 David Salazar got his start with the Zephyr Studios  before working at Lundberg Glass Studios in the early 1970s and went out on his own around 1983. He is particularly well known for his Moon & Star pattern as well as his paperweights and marbles. This example is signed and dated 8-13 Salazar.


This toothpick holder stands 2 5/8 inches tall and is 1 15/16 inches across the top rim.  The base glass is cobalt but it has been sprayed with mineral salts in the tradition of Art Nouveau Tiffany or Steuben glass.  The resulting surface has overtones of purple, blue, rose and gold. 


The design harkens back to the Art Nouveau period as it features five blossoms and vines. The blossoms are done in a purple glass with white highlights. The vines move diagonally across the surface giving this glass great movement.  It is in excellent condition.  A great example of great glass by a great contemporary glass artist.

It has what is known as a Lazy Amberina portion wherein the division between the amber glass and the heat-sensitive red glass is not delineated neatly but flows further down on one side than the other.


The color is a deeper brownish amber than what Phoenix Glass company produced. As well, the foot does not have the continuation of the optic pattern of the body.  


It is my best guess that this piece is of European origin, most likely English or French.


In any case, it is a beautiful piece of Victorian art glass. The holder is in excellent condition with no chip, flakes, or cracks. There are some small bubbles in the glass body but it was manufactured that way.


Add it to your Art Glass or Toothpick holder collection today.

It is thought that this toothpick holder may have been produced until 1970.


This Madoline pattern toothpick holder was first produced by the Co-operative Flint Glass Company of Beaver Falls, PA in 1893.  It enjoyed a very long production life as it was perfectly suited to the promotional and souvenir market with its plain sides.


This toothpick holder stands 2 3/8 inches tall x 2 1/8 inches wide.  It has a shield of ruby stain which serves as a background for the inscription Ella 1925.  These had to be ordered ahead of time so this was probably to commemorate a special event.


The name of the pattern Madoline was for the young daughter of the Company's Secretary, Mr. Charles W. Klein.


It is in excellent vintage condition and ready to join your Co-operative Glass, toothpick holder or ruby-stained Early American Pattern Glass collection today.
