Most popular during the first half of the 20th century, flower frogs were used to arrange flowers and were likely called "frogs" because they sat in water. Made from ceramic, glass, metal, or plastic, they came in a great variety of forms ranging from beautiful nudes to odd wire contraptions, all fun to collect.

If you need help identifying a flower frog and haven't found it in the collections presented on this website or through the Identification Resources page, you are welcome to write to me.

And if you have a specialized collection of your own you'd like to share to help educate others, I'd be interested in discussing the possibility of presenting it on this website!
