Vintage Garden Collectibles

Here's a group of vintage garden collectibles including posy rings, troughs, flower bricks and flower frogs.

When shopping at estate sales and vintage/antique shops I find it helpful to have a few ideas of items I’d like to find. If you are a garden lover I have a few interesting collectibles to add to your list.

A while back I wrote a post about Flower Frogs and showed several owned by my friend Lisa. She is a great gardener and has a wonderful home filled with many varied and beautiful collections.

The clear glass frog fits perfectly in this white vase. Look how nice just a few alstroemeria stems fill out the vase with the use of a flower frog. Makes flower arranging a cinch.

Floral Frog with Makeup Brushes
I’m using the beautiful all-in-one frog to hold my makeup brushes for easy access. Something I enjoy looking at everyday.

Recently Lisa shared more of her vintage garden collections. A group of containers that were used to root ivy and other cuttings, or simply to display flower heads in the form of rings, troughs and flower bricks.

These posy vases were popular in the 1950s. Just deep enough for a single, small flower to float in water.

This last group shows a beautiful cherub ring and two blue and white vases known as Flower Bricks. Flower Bricks became popular during the 18th century with the tulip craze. You can read more about Flower Bricks in this article from The Northern Clay Center.

I hope this inspires you to be on the lookout for these treasures the next time you go antiquing.

Thank you Lisa for your generous gifts and for sharing your gorgeous collections.
