Félix Marcilhac René Lalique 1860-1945 Catalogue Raisonné De L'Oeuvre De Verre, Paris 1989
Whilst the vase does not appear in Marcilhac, frogs frequently appear as a motif in the glass designs of Réne Lalique. He also used multiples of a motif as a design feature, offering the dual effect of style and stabilty.
