The second item is a flower holder. A frog sits in the bottom of the "bowl" and flowers go through the cutouts on the lid and fit into the frog. I have the exact same piece which belonged to my mother. I remember her putting short stemmed flowers in it when I was a child.

What you suspect is a sugar bowl, with the cut-outs on the lid, is actually a pansy vase.  Each cut-out supports a single stem, so the soft flowers don't sink into the water

I can answer Depression glass and Early American Pattern Glass related questions. I can also answer general collectible, California Pottery, "vintage" and antique related questions. I love our history and how antique & "vintage" artifacts interacted in our lives.


I am an avid Depression Glass and Early American Pattern Glass collector. I have sold antiques and collectibles in an antique store and online. I love helping others and would be happy to help you identify the pattern and maker of your glassware. I am an avid 1940's & 1950's art pottery collector and have Heidi Schoop, Kay Finch and Brayton Pottery pieces in my own collection. You name it, I've probably collected it! If I don't know the answer, I certainly have a vast resource of other antique collectors who can help me out.
