Product Description

A wonderful pair of decorative frogs…

As commissioned by Fortnum & Mason, the upmarket department store in Piccadilly, London, this is a pair of hand made display frogs from an in store promotion. From the advertising campaign “Found your prince charming yet!?”, we understand the frogs were used to support the launch of a range of chocolate frogs. These are simply amazing pieces and a true ‘one off’…

Standing over 1.4 metres tall, the frogs are made from a variety of materials, and quality ones at that. The heads are made from what we think is resin (they are hard to touch) and the main body is made from a padded material or sponge (soft to feel). The clothing and accessories that have been personally designed are delightful on the eye. There seems to have been many hours spent in building these pieces to the quality that they are currently presented in. There’s a mixture of silk, velvet and cotton, and then the frogs are accessorised with jewelry and fabric pieces

The frogs are articulated at their arms and legs, therefore they can be moved in many different positions, even to be seated as pictured. The attention to detail also reveals that the individual fingers have wire inside, enabling them to be moved when directed too…!

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. That said, we would say that the frogs are in ‘as made, or as new’ condition. They are clean, tidy and very elegant in their build and look and feel. There may be a few tatty areas or surface wear and tear yet it is hard to articulate this from their near mint condition. Please do study the photos for your confidence, as it would be difficult to highlight all imperfections…

Lastly, we understand that these cost £3,000 to be personally made…
