Pair of Bronze and Wrought Iron Andirons
Contact Yew Tree House at (212) 249-6612.
Fine quality pair of bronze and wrought iron andirons, the bold ball finials with nipple tops and ringed waists, over hand-hammered and etched shafts with central collar, the fronts with spit supports with identical but smaller bronze finials, over arched and scrolled legs also with etched decoration, the pair having impressive scale and warm glow.
The bronze finials on these andirons have an especially ruddy complexion, perhaps being bell metal or other bronze alloy with higher than average copper content - on the whole a very pleasing look.
