This is a flower holder (flower frog) for the art lover. It is art pottery in colors of blue, green and slight hues of lavender. The motif will remind you of water and indeed it's like the wire frog in the center is to float the flowers or floral arrangement in a way as to remind you of a liquid, cool stream or river. The piece is signed on the bottom & it has 4 felt pads to protect surfaces from scratching. This piece measures 4 1/2" diameter on top and 4 3/4" diameter on the bottom. It's quite heavy and will be sturdy enough to hold even the heaviest stems. From my personal collection.
