The second size, about 3 inches tall, was a toothpick or match-holder; it makes an excellent container for cigarettes today. The third size, between 4 and 6 inches tall, was a spoon holder,the largest and rarest, 6 inches or more high, was used to hold celery at the table. The 3-inch size or reproductions of it are most likely to be found today. Shipping extra. Connecticut residents and buyers picking up in Connecticut add 6.35% state sales tax.
