A TOUGH ONE TO FIND!!
This toothpick holder is a delight! It’s a Cigars & Band, signed Robert Hansen, iridized holder! Marked on the bottom with Wheeling, WVA The Stogie City. I’ve seen one reported in “teal” but this is sapphire to me.
This glass color is beautiful… teal or sapphire… it’s a stunning color and of course it has amazing iridescence! Love the YELLOW!! The Aqua and Blue and other colors are great too of course!!
This is really an adorable little piece. Hansen items are highly collectible and small in number. Robert was a brilliant iridizer of glass and this piece is off the charts! Although I don’t know what year this was made, the Hansen brothers (Robert and Ron) started doing this in the 1960s.
