This 1972 lucite flower frog (or Flower Dome as it is called on the box) was designed by Ellen Rogin for Bonnier's as the box and bottom of the lucite frog attest to. A 1974 article in the New York Times refers to the store's closing and mentions that Bonnier's was "the shop that pioneered with sophisticated modern furnishings, here following World War II."
The carton graphics were designed by Tom Volo, and this reference appears on the underside of the box along with East House, NYC and Made in USA.
The lucite base has Rogin Enterprises, LTD., Ellen Rogin 1972, and Made in USA.
CONDITION: The box has wear, particularly on the edges in the form of chipping as well as some creasing and soiling. There is also a sticker mark on the bottom. The lucite itself has some scratching and marks, particularly on the lid portion. These were difficult to photograph as they aren't readily visible when viewing the piece in its entirety.
The hexagonal box lid is 5" x 5 1/2". Height is 5".
The bottom portion of the frog is 4 3/4" across and 2 1/4" deep.
Thank you for looking.
