VINTAGE FLOWER ARRANGER
This is my wonderful, vintage flower arranger. I have had it for a long time. I bought it years ago from a nice lady at an estate sale. This lady's Mama had died and she was selling her things to settle some debts. Since most of her things were from the forties or early fifties, I think this must date back to that period. It is unmarked with only the marks made by the kiln feet, on the bottom. I just love it when It is filled with flowers. It is probably on the list of my ten favorite things I own.
I wish I had a picture with flowers in it but I haven't taken many pictures of my arrangements because even with this, I am not a great flower arranger. I love trying though. I have another metal frog, a round one, which looks to be pretty old. It makes pretty bedside bouquets.
I love this one because the frog is an oval shape and makes it easy for me to arrange flowers in a more pleasing way. It is about 12x8 and nearly three inches deep, so you can make a fairly large arrangement in it.
