Well, my beautiful Walther Schmetterling vase arrived - complete with frog!
However ... :?
The dealer did say he wasn't sure if it was the right frog, as it is clear glass, but Pamela said the frog was meant
to be clear so it didn't show through.
However, I have a problem. IMHO the frog is not a very good fit. So I need to ask if anyone knows whether Walther made frogs specifically for each different vase or bowl, or whether they made a selection of frogs which sort-of fitted a variety of similar shaped bowls or vases.
Here's a couple of pics of the frog : http://tinypic.com/dg5j4z.jpg http://tinypic.com/dg5jba.jpg
Sadly, as you can see, there is a chip off the end of one or two 'fins'
But the fins don't actually touch the inside of the vase in several places, which is why I wonder if it's the right one! :?
I have sort of decided not to display the vase with the frog in anyway, as it sits quite high in the vase and IMO spoils the view of the butterfly lady from inside when viewed from above. Since I have nowhere high to display her (as cats might knock her down! :shock: ) I want to be able to see into
the vase. See what I mean in this picture : http://tinypic.com/dg5gzn.jpg
She is *sooooo* gorgeous! :shock: I just love her!
To me, she's so 'Metropolis' I just want to go and watch the film again! :lol:
