Metal Flower Frogs

Metal flower frogs come in a wonderfully fun variety of forms ranging from artistic sculptures to molded cage-like pieces to collections of sharp pins. Wire contraptions can have the look of modern art, reminding 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.

130 Flower Frogs

I don't have room for a collection of metal flower frogs, so I collect photos of them. The Photo Gallery includes photos of 130 flower frogs, each different in appearance and/or inscription.

Identification:  When known, identification is given in the photo's annotation. Sources are noted, e.g., product markings and information found in Flower Frogs for Collectors by Bonnie Bull.

Photos are numbered M-1, M-2 and so on for reference purposes.
