A floral or flower frog is a tool florists or flower arrangers use to sit in the bottom of a bowl or vase filled with water. The frog hold the stems in place allowing the arrangement to maintain its shape and or style. Flower frogs date back to the 14th century in Japan. They became extremely popular in the 1920’s and 1930’s when flower arranging became a way to beautify ones home. Manufacturing dropped off sharply with the introduction of floral oasis foam in the 1950’s.
This vintage collection of 10 pieces, a mixture of metal cages and small, medium and large glass frogs is a very special find for a frog collector. Included are clear glass frogs along with colored glass, tortoise shell amber and carnival glass. They are pre-owned and some show signs of wear, but there are no chips or cracks in the glass.
All proceeds benefit the animals of Flagler Humane Society, a non-profit charity organization.
