Vintage Alum WOODPECKER TOOTHPICK HOLDER Picks Up Picks - (eBay item 310006118905 end time Dec-14-07 21:26:19 PST)
This vintage cast aluminum woodpecker toothpick holder moves to pick up a toothpick for you when you push down on his head. There's a sewing machine needle glued into his beak that stabs a pick in the hollow "log."
The underside is embossed, "Morton Grove Products." At least I think that's what it says. It's a bit hard to make out the second word.
The paint on the log is worn off all the high points. The woodpecker still has almost all his color.
Do this animated woodpecker toothpick holder and picker-upper make you smile? See more photos on eBay.
