SOLD! Vintage Metal Ikebana Florists Frogs


I got this great set of 9 vintage metal florists frogs at an auction a couple of weeks back. It’s been years since I’ve made any serious attempts at creating ikebana arrangements, but these certainly reminded me to pull out my own supplies.

One of the pieces is hinged (see above) and can be arranged to suit your pleasure.  There’s a 10th piece that’s not familiar to me (as seen in the photo above and those below), although that’s probably only because I messed around with florals rather than pursuing it seriously.

Condition:   Excellent.  Very solid and heavy.

Price:  $40.00 for the lot.  (Plus the usual 5.5% Maine State Sales tax, of course.)

Location:  189B Main Street (rear entrance), Lewiston  ME.



NOTE: Now that we’ve downsized at our main location, our new entrance is at the back of the building!  You’ll see some signs in the windows saying “Heritage Collectibles”, “Retail Shop” and “Welcome”!   And of course, our “Open” flag!

Thank you to everyone who has supported us for the past three years!



In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially the section we called Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – that was his baby.

He loved me like crazy, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps will go to help fund The (Grief) Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

[Please Note: The (Grief) Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 20o1.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.]
