Vintage Blue Ribbon #5 METAL FLOWER FROG 
Antique Arranger Holder 1 of 3

I love the shape of these vintage hairpin flower frogs from the 1930's; the center holders look like elongated hearts when viewed from the side. Manufacturers mark on the bottom reads, "Blue Ribbon Flower Holder Co., #5, Pat. No. 2029645, Hawthorne, N.Y." Its heavy round lead base and metal hairpin wire form has a 3-1/2” bottom diameter and stands approx. 2-1/4"T. It’s the 1st of 3 I’m offering this week…if you win more than one I’ll be sure to include a flat rate to save on shipping.

I tucked away these original advertising instructions  from a previous one I sold...

Your new flower holder will give you a lifetime of pleasure.
Versatile – It can be used with any stem size, at any angle; in any container, tall or flat.
It is inconspicuous to use, even when higher than the container.
As you practice, you’ll find that small stems will slip in easily and hold firm. Be sure that a small stem is at an angle and resting in the “notch” at the top of each pin. Build up from the sides working towards the center. For larger arrangements it’s a good idea to anchor your holder with Vogue Stickum or good floral clay.

This great old frog still retains a good portion of its original grassy green paint on its lead base and elongated holders with no bent or missing wires.  Simply a classic gem and a great choice for your collection!

Please study my photos and consider them as part of my description.  Know my items are guaranteed to be as described in both photos and text so buy with confidence.
And I'm only an email away if further details are necessary.
Thanks a bunch for your consideration and for stopping by. I truly appreciate all my customers...both old and new!
