Manufacturer: Vintage Flower Frogs
Neat vintage find, a pottery or ceramic flower frog. This is a good medium size, round, measuring 3 1/2 inches in diameter and sitting about 1 1/2 inches in height. Has 16 fairly evenly spaced holes (not exactly even), with the holes about 5/16 inch in diameter. This is a heavy piece, weighing about 12 ounces unpacked.

Nifty mottled dark green glaze with lighter and darker areas to it. The camera light used in the images makes this appear a bit lighter green than what you will see in person as often happens with mottled green ceramic glazes when photographed. The light also creates white "hot spot" reflections on the smooth top and side surfaces. The underside shows the pottery with some glazing that dripped through (not totally glazed here).

There is no manufacturer marking on this piece so we can't tell you who made this. But the look and condition is supportive of it being a vintage piece, not new. We've provided 7 images to show from varied angles, including 2 close-ups of the larger chip on the underside.

Great usable and displayable condition but this is a vintage piece with some flaws. As you can see there is a chip on the underside base, from the rim and extending towards the center, largely flat with one deeper edge on one side. There is a tiny, second, minor chip on the underside base rim in another spot that appears partly glazed on the side, which was likely made in manufacture, which could also be true of the larger one, we are not sure. There are topside surface scratches, minor glaze flaking around some of the holes (perhaps from use), glaze pops/tiny holes, many side rubbed/wear/surface wear spots, etc., but nothing out of the ordinary for a vintage piece that likely was used. None of this would detract from the great overall look on display and adds to the believability of age.
