And here was me wondering what a penguin frog would look like. Something green. and black and white. and slimey. and beaky, I would have thought.

But, luckily, it's not.

So back to the main programme...  ;D

Pretty sure that one is Czech, there's one here:

Pretty desirable too, I sold a blue one (not frosted) with a huge chip last year (admitted fully in listing I hasten to add) and still got about £35 for it.  :)

Hi Ed.  You might find a moulded mark saying czechoslovakia underneath between two of the holes of the flower frog (it's quite small and tricky to see).  Mine has this as does the matching bowl indicating that it was made in Czechoslovakia - unfortunately I don't think the maker has yet been identified.

I looked where you said and nothing so I look on the topside - still nothing. Then I decided to look around the base of the rock and there it is. Thank you. If it hadn't been for you saying that I wouldn't have looked there. Ed.

 ;D  I found mine by fluke - I've spent ages scouring glass for a makers mark only to discover them months / years later - they can be very hard to see!
