About the Item

Collectible Candle Holder & Flower Frog by Brush Pottery. Blue / brown spatterware, sheer milky glaze. Great gift for vintage lover, gardener, pottery collector.

************************************************************************


Beautiful Spatterware Candleholder - Flower Frog by Brush Pottery in shades of blue and brown spatterware with a translucent milky green glaze. In excellent vintage condition, this versatile beauty holds taper candles or slim columns with tapered fittings. You could also get creative and use slim tapers in each of the "frog holes,' with or without flowers or greenery for a dazzling display! Flower displays, ivies, herbs, fruit on stems... All look charming centrally piled and cascading over the edges. It's multi-functions and low silhouette make this pottery into quite a multi-tasker! With flowers in or covering the two larger candle cups, this piece may also function as a vase only. With or without candles, simply keep the shallow water refreshed to prolong the life of your flowers or greenery.

The early histories of Brush Pottery and Brush-McCoy Pottery are closely related and the principal players intertwine and overlap at several points in the two companies’ histories. This piece is marked with Brush and USA on the underside, but some early Brush McCoy Pottery is known to have only been marked Brush. No matter--a rose is a rose..!

My Vintage Spatterware Candleholder/Flower Frog will, without a doubt, make a lovely presentation if used as expected--on your dining table. But don’t let your imagination stop there! it would be a shame to limit this vintage beauty to special occasions only! It would be equally wonderful elsewhere in your home as on your special occasion table--basically anytime you have the need for a little quiet romance and charm (who amongst us does not..?!).

No fancy flowers are necessary! Just head to your yard for herb garden snips, seasonal leaf trimmings, your flower or rose garden. Picture this beauty on your coffee table, your everyday dinner table, and your alfresco dinner table (how charming!) It would be brilliant on a sofa table, tucked behind shabby or slip-covered seating, or on the “not-to-high” mantel with your vintage collectibles. And don’t forget to consider it for those rare occasions when you simply have a quiet moment with a glass of wine, a bubble bath, a good book!

Note: I have one of these treasures for myself and trust me, it does not require purchased flowers to look fabulous! I have never made a single floral purchase for my piece, and every time I bring it out for the coffee table or a casual dinner with friends my own candleholder is a source of admiration as well as conversation.

If my roses are not in bloom, I sometimes just snip and tuck in a few sprigs of something else from my yard, such as rosemary (green and fragrant!), colorful Lorapetulum ( fringe "flowers" are seasonal, but rosy, purple leaves are year round in Texas). A magnolia blossom with only a few leaves--Gorgeous! The orange flowers of Trumpet Vine or the yellow flowers of Carolinea Jasmine or Honeysuckle don’t last long, but if you have them you know---there is an endless supply! Holly with berries, Japanese Maple whenever (fall is most beautiful--see photo) or Nandina look beautiful in the fall! If, like me, you never need all of the herbs that come from the grocery store, whatever you don’t use looks wonderful in this piece, and smells good too!

My Vintage Brush Spatterware Candleholder - Flower Frog is looking for a new home with which to share its versatile, vintage charm. Might it be yours..?
