Estate sale find


Called by many names - pin frog, kenzan, flower spikes, flower arranging frog, needle holder - these bases are particularly used in ikebana.

I bought an assload at a recent estate sale and here's a stack of them set against the background of my green dining room.

I'm late to the party, but I came across your blog while gathering flower frog ideas. I wanted to let you know that I linked to your post in a blog entry about interesting ways to use antique flower frogs. Thanks for the inspiration!
