The attractive, heavy and large lead model of a stylised frog, freestanding, showing a good patination to the remains of the green paint to the lead, the reverse hollow. and surviving from the mid twentieth century.

The piece is naturally heavy being in stable overall order and there is a nice patination with some discolouration and established wear commensurate with having been placed outside. With the back being flat and hollow he may well have been used as a fountain with the back flush to a wall. There are no losses.

Perfect for the aquatic themed garden.
