Item details

Vintage from the 1940s

Once sold as a utilitarian device to quickly and easily arrange flowers, today, flower frogs are highly collectible, more often used as a home accent piece, than as a flower arranger.

This rust-proof, made-to-last-a-lifetime, hairpin-type flower frog was designed to hold stems firmly from any angle. A most versatile holder, the hairpin-shaped brass pins do not prick your fingers or split stems. The heavy lead base helps stabilize arrangements of fresh, dried or even silk flowers. This piece was manufactured in the USA where the Blue Ribbon Flower Holder Co is still in business today.

The holder is in very good vintage condition - I have not attempted to clean. The green paint is chippy and worn in spots attributable to its past use and life. All hairpin wires are present albeit some are slightly bent. The piece weighs close to 15 ounces. The base measures 3" in diameter; the total width of the piece including the pins is 4". The height is 2 1/4".

Embossed-marked on bottom:

BLUE RIBBON FLOWER HOLDER CO
PATENTED
4
CUYAHOGA FALLS, O

Great as a decorator feature; a holder for paint brushes, photos, make up pencils, cards or who knows, maybe even flowers!

Item price includes US Postal Service shipping with Insurance and / or Delivery Confirmation services.

Additional policies

As with the nature of any antique / vintage item, there may be signs of past use or wear. We do our best to photograph and list any imperfections in an individual item's listing details, but please keep in mind that the majority of what we sell has been previously owned and used. We strive to deliver high quality items in good functional, usable, working condition, but our antique / vintage items are all sold on an AS IS basis.

We thoroughly inspect and research to accurately represent our antique and vintage items; but in some cases, the information we provide about an item's age or origin cannot be guaranteed. Any errors made are unintentional with no thought to mislead or deceive.

As all individual item prices include shipping, handling and insurance, please convo us when purchasing multiple items - we will combine item weight and adjust the total shipping cost to maximize savings for you.
