Metal Flower Frogs

Metal flower frogs come in an amazing variety of forms ranging from artistic sculptures to molded cages to collections of sharp pins. Wire contraptions remind one of Alexander Calder's beautiful mobiles.

Most metal flower frogs have attractive patinas ranging from iron rust to copper greens, and a collection displays a variety of different metals. Some incorporate plastic in their design.
