“The Frog Prince” Storybox
Housed within a vintage 1920’s Waltham Mainspring tin, a tiny little 1930’s lead painted frog figure is wanting a kiss …. maybe he will turn in to a Prince? He sits upon a hand-embroidered lily pad, made from vintage green cotton, embroidered with vintage silk thread. This lily pad, in turn, rests upon a pond surface, fashioned from an offcut of blue celluloid from a 1940’s bag. The Frog Prince is accompanied by a waterlily, fashioned from a vintage 1940’s millinery flower. The word “kiss” is sculpted from wire. Total size, when closed, measures 7cm x 7cm x 2.25cm deep.
