Wiesbaden toothpick

Description (Brief)
Celluloid toothpick in the shape of a stork. The stork's body is imitation tortoiseshell, and the beak consists of two imitation ivory picks. Its legs are also imitation ivory, with feet cut to resemble high-heeled slippers. This may be a souvenir, as it has "Weisbaden," a German city, painted on one side.
