It is the hard-to-find "Flora" figurine, which is sometimes found as part of a flower float bowl set. She is a beautiful shade of yellowish green that glows brilliantly under UV light. It is sometimes called Vaseline glass, and has a lovely frosted or satin surface finishing. The piece measures approximately 7.5 tall and is in very good condition. There don't appear to be any chips, but there is some very small fissures around one of the holes in the base that probably occurred during manufacturing.
Some of the holes are a little rough, which is typical of these types of pieces. There are a couple tiny bubbles, also typical. See photos for closeup views. "Flora" holds a giant bouquet of roses above her head.Unlike many of the nude flower frog ladies, Flora is wearing a very modest, flowing strapped gown. The detailing of the draping, right down to the tie in the back, is amazing. If you're a collector of British or English art deco glass objects, this is one to have.
Especially in this unusual color. Please don't hesitate to ask questions.Thanks for looking and happy collecting!
