René Lalique placed little sheets of metal foil behind the applied green frogs to reflect a dark green tint back to the viewer.
This vase is an early example of French designer René Lalique's experimentation with producing artistic glass. Lalique combines applied, cast, and molded glass techniques to achieve an ethereal effect of a murky swamp, a typical Art Nouveau motif. Lily pads adorn the surface with green frogs perched on top.
