What am I? A flower frog or something else..?
« on: May 02, 2014, 06:47:16 PM »
I haven't a clue what this could be.  I thought it might be a flower frog, but if it is, which way up does it go?  Would the centre hole house a figurine?  It measures approx. 3" square and 1" deep.  One end is nicely polished and the other has a flat round rim.
I may be way off with my flower frog idea and it might be for a light fitting of some sort.  Pic.3 certainly looks like a frog - a headless one.

Any ideas please?

Yes, it's a flower frog for a square vase, possibly Sowerby?

Thanks for the thumbs up Christine.  :)
I've looked through all the Sowerby resources that I have, but without luck, but it could be in something that I don't yet have.
Will get back if I have any success.

That is gorgeous!
It has to be related to their "Sunray" trinket set too ???  I had odd pieces a long time ago and had forgotten about them.  They made the set in uranium green - seen in glasstrinketsets.com
