Manufacturer: Vintage China Flower Frogs
Nifty find out of a home, a china or bisque porcelain flower frog with a pale orange lustre glaze. Smaller round size measuring about 2 7/8 inches in diameter with a dome shape sitting about 1 1/4 inches in height. This has 13 holes measuring about 5/8 inches in diameter, fairly evenly spaced.

With the glazing this piece is not translucent but may be called bisque porcelain or china. It is not a pottery piece from the white unglazed portions we can see within the holes from both the top and bottom sides. The orange glaze covers all surfaces, top and bottom, and is reminiscent of the type of glaze seen on Japanese porcelains ca. 1920s, but we don't know the exact age here as there is no manufacturer marking. From the style, however, it is definitely at least vintage and not new.

On the underside you can see this was made with three indentations, likely to permit easier water flow under this piece when sitting in a vase or planter. This piece is solid with a nice weight to it for it's size, weighing about 6 1/2 ounces unpacked.

We've provided 7 images to show from varied angles. Please note that the camera lighting causes white "hot spot" reflections on the high gloss, smooth surfaces. Please use the zoom feature to examine closely.

Very nice vintage condition overall but was likely used and shows some wear. There is one flat chip on the side near the lower rim which you can see in some of the images (please note one side image shows this chip clearly while another shows a bright white spot which is one of the light "hot spots" from the camera flash, there is only one chip). The whiteness shown via the chip further supports that this is a china or bisque piece and not pottery. There is other surface wear via scratches, rubbed spots, a light discoloration line which circles the upper sides of this piece (not obvious if on display but you can see this if you look for it), pin/pit dots/dark dots in the glazing, etc., nothing unexpected for a vintage used piece.
