Caption: Two toothpicks, the lower one is in silver and the upper with folding mechanism and ear scoop. These date from around 1890, England. There is evidence of the use of toothpicks in many of the earliest human cultures. In the 1800s, dental hygiene was becoming more popular, and by the end of the nineteenth century toothpick manufacturing machines were mass producing them to meet demand.
