A lovely Asian, Japanese Flower Frog or Garden Fountain head. The Flower Frog is in the figural form of a Carp Fish, he is made from a heavy metal with a patinated bronze finish and is nicely cast. The Carp has holes on the back for a flower frog, in addition there is a small hole on the underside and his mouth is open so he might have been used for a fountain. The Carp Fish is marked "Made in Japan". He is big at 5 5/8" long x 2 1/2" high. The Carp Flower Frog is in very good overall condition with no cracks or chips in the metal. There are a few small dents on the tips of his fins, see photos. The Carp would be lovely in a centerpiece with fresh flowers.
