6 32mm or 1.26" Diameter Floral Pin Frogs or Kenzan for Japanese Ikebana Vases or Stands

$24.00


The Japanese Art of Ikebana became a favorite pastime for me several years ago and as a woodworker I enjoyed making Ikebana Vases and /or Ikebana Stands. Being fortunate enough to live in Hawaii I have been surrounded by beautiful wood and between the two loves I started making these Ikebana Vases.

Kenzan or Floral Pin Frogs used to be found all over peoples homes in Hawaii when I was growing up but today cost of the metals has driven people in the floral trade to go to Floral putty for most flower arrangements. Today there is a great interest in Japanese Ikebana and with that interest has come the need once again for the Kenzan or Floral Pin Frogs. I am offering several different sizes here in case quantities for those who might be interested.

This sale is for 6 32mm or 1.26" Diameter Kenzan which is one fourth of a case. These Kenzan have a lead zinc base and have Stainless Steel Pins. These are a medium sized kenzan being 1.26" in diameter but are one of the most in demand. I use these in my Aluminum Water Holding Cups that I am also selling here on Etsy. They are the Pins that are in both my 3" Water Holding kenzan and my 1 7/8" Water Holding kenzan.

These Kenzan can be cemented in flower arrangement containers with the use of a little silicone adhesive. Another major use of these Pin Frogs is in the pottery trade where flower arranging cups and containers are now being made to hold water and flowers. ( See my other Ikebana Supply Sales).

I included a nickel in the pictures so you can get an idea of the size of these kenzan.

I have been asked by several customers to provide a smaller amount of these Kenzan in a sale for the occasional user --- so here it is

Shipping from United States

At the present time I only ship to the USA due to negative Customs experiences I have had in the past.

I ship either US Priority Mail or US First Class mail depending upon the items weight. I try to ship the same day but because of my location in Hawaii your package will usually ship the following day as long as it is not a Sunday or Holiday.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why don't you ship outside of the USA ?

I will consider and have shipped to other Countries but only after we agree on prices and shipping. This must be done through the Convo system here on Etsy and is not available for all items due to the weight and shipping restrictions on some of my items.

I will however ship to friends or relatives of customers who are located in the USA and then they can make shipping arrangements to the customers location overseas.
