Degenhart Shoe Blue Milk Glass Toothpick Holder
At Memory Lane, I have this cute little blue milk glass baby shoe toothpick holder for your consideration.
This is the Vintage Baby Shoe by Degenhart with the toes sticking out of the leather. This blue milk glass toothpick holder has opalescence around the top edge of the boot. There are parts of the baby shoe that are almost translucent. There is one crack on the glass; it appears to be a stress crack that was made when it was created. It is located on the top edge. This little container is referred to by many names: Baby Shoe, Tramp Boot, Hobo Boot, or High Top Boot; it could be used for many purposes, including small jewelry, matches, trinkets, change, and gems. The Degenhart's called it a Baby Shoe.
