100mm or 3.94" Diameter Floral Pin Frog or Kenzan for Japanese Ikebana Vase or Stand

$26.80 $33.50

Shipping to United States: $8.75


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 Frog. I am offering several different sizes here in different quantities for those who might be interested.

This sale is for (one) 80mm or 3.94" Diameter Kenzan or Floral Pin Frog. This Kenzan has a lead zinc base and has Stainless Steel Pins. This is a large sized kenzan being 3.94" in diameter with a weight of about 2.1 pounds. The stainless steel pins on this kenzan are about 14mm or about 5/8" long and the height from floor to top of pins is just over 1".

The Kenzan can be cemented in flower arrangement containers with the use of a little clear silicone adhesive (smells like vinegar). 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 Sales).

I have placed a nickel in the pictures to give you an idea of the size of the Kenzan. The last picture shows this 100mm Kenzan along side my 71mm Kenzan and my 80mm Kenzan

Many people in the scrap-booking and card business use this size kenzan to hold there projects for taking photos . It make a great note holder (card holder) for picture taking.

Please look through my other sales as I have listed several different sizes and quantities of Kenzan in my possession .

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.

Thank you for your generosity and the kenzan I've been looking for for a long time.



I was looking for a larger Kenzan and was so glad when I found this one! Shipping was so fast even though it was coming from Hawaii
