    Vintage Brass or Bronze Verdigris Frog Pulling A Shell Cart Sculpture

    Beautiful patina on this sculpture of a very hard working frog pulling a nautilus shell shaped cart.

    Circa 1970's
    He's pretty rare,  don't see many of these around. But I have seem variations of him.  Bronze with an insect on the shell. Also a similar version in carnival glass.

    This piece is hand crafted with excellent detail.
    He is solid metal, and quite heavy.
    Very Lovely Patina on it.

    Measures...
    6-1/2 inches long
    1-1/2 inches wide
    2-3/4 inches high

    I've seen these listed as toothpick holders, I thick its too big for that.
    But it would be great as a planter.

    It's such a fun piece, I really enjoy it.
    It will hold everything from business cards to pens to flowers to potpourri.
    It has a wonderful style that looks at home on any table or desk it's placed on. 
    Note the last photo was borrowed to show this adorable peace with Flowers

      Did anyone ever figure out the story behind these? I have 2 of them and one still has a sticker on the bottom says SPI (San Pacific International). Would love to get more information on them!!
