(I am glad that I managed to salvage it from her old village house. Since I own other things that intensively remind me of her I would not mind part with it. I am optimistic that it will go to a person who values old style, rare glassware...)
Based on family information, it is dated circa 1930s although there is no marking as such. I have done extensive research to trace the exact glass maker, however with no further luck. The only characteristic mark is a glass-embossed design of two flying swallow birds on the external bottom part; Still, I could not find such a marking or an item similar to this in relevant antique glass lists.
Note that toothpicks lay flat instead of standing up right into the holder and that the outer glass's beautiful decoration resembles (both in design & texture) that of a snake's skin.
The toothpick holder is quite heavy and measures about 10cm (3.9") in length, 4cm (1.6") in width, and it's 3cm (1.2") tall.
Great for glassware experts and/or antique collectors!
