A hexagonal clear pressed glass flower frog. Measures approximately 4 inches wide across the flats. There is a hemispherical foot at each angle of the base, which also bears the raised registration number 632588.

The design was registered by Burtles, Tate & Co. on 20 February 1914.

They registered some 60 designs between 1870 and 1914, and are mainly known for their flamboyant flower vases, holders and stands (most famously their swan and elephant designs) of the mid-and late-80s. This rather mundane flower frog was their final registered design.
