The flower frog was displayed in the 1936 catalogue with 3 bowls and you could choose which bowl you would like to go with your bird centrepiece. This is a very imposing flower frog compared to similar items of the time. The ring is one of the largest of the time and has a high number of holes. The figure depicts a large exotic Cockatoo proudly perched on a tall mound of foliage.
The main body of the bird has a thick amber colour to it which almost looks frosted and this differed from the rest of the frog as it hollow and a lighter colour. This gives off a marvellous effect. The bird has very fine detail to the feathers and plumage. The flower handled bowl is very organic in its look and shape which would match the exotic nature of the bird figure. The panels of the bowl have a stylised sweeping swirl pattern.This could be modelled on leaves or perhaps feathers to match the theme of the Kakadu. On parts of these swirls is included a stylised fan design. The rim of the bowl is scalloped and the base sits on a ring of lozenge shaped feet. The centre of the bowl has an intaglio pattern of a large open flower. Finishing off the bowl at the sides are two leaf / feather and exotic flower handles. Flower reminds me of a passion flower which again underlines the exotic feel of the both the figure and bowl. Looks great back lit by the sun. Bird has a 1 inch impact bruise on the base, and other chips and nibbles around the base. Tail has a sliver off the underside of the end. Two sliver chips on the upper rim next two two flower holes (on either end of the flower ring) also a tiny impact chip on the body of the bird. The bowl has an inch long hairline crack in the base running over one foot and three of the flowers on the handles have sliver chips. Usual vintage wear, some scratches and air bubbles.
