I bought these frogs at a local antique years ago. Picked them up for next to nothing.

It is enamel floral patterns with some of the yellow appearing metallic. I have searched around and not found any similar items. I'm not even too certain what language the markings are in. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Hi, the marks are Chinese, in the form of a hallmark. They read top down and right to left. I scanned Gotheborg's listing of Chinese marks (and some other sources) without finding yours. I believe the left stack reads 'Precious Treasure' . If you like, I can post the mark on an Asian forum and see what happens. Let me know. Regards, Jim

    That would be great if you could post the mark on the Asian forum. Thank you for your assistance on these.

    Hi, more than I had hoped for, Bill H is the most knowledgeable scholar on the forum. Best wishes, Jim
