Apparently intended as a toothpick holder, most of these 3 1/2-inch tall items have souvenir lettering. This one is incribed "Souvenir of Detroit, Mich." About 20 years ago they were more desireable; this one brought $280 in 1995. However, in 1998, another Detroit example brought $100 and in 2000, one with a Buffalo, NY inscription sold for just $10.

In 2008, a marigold example sold for $25 and in 2012 another marigold brought $55.

In 2016, another marigold example sold for $75.

In 2017, a marigold example brought $65.
