Bathing Beauties

A friend of mine collects bathing beauties, but not just bathing beauty flower frogs. She has many fascinating figures in her collection. Pictured above are her bathing beauty flower frogs. Although these stylish ladies are not all wearing swim suits, they are all out for a day in the sun. They were made in Germany and exported to the United States in the 1920's. I think they make a wonderful collection in themselves. I hope this inspires some of you to search out these unusual flower frogs. BB.

If you have an interest in these ladies be sure to vistit Sharon Weintraub's website: Naughties, Nudies, and Bathing Beauties. Sharon has a book on the subject by the same name. The book only features one flower frog, but there is lots of information about the development and manufacturing of these ladies.
