Seller: pryankee (12,745) 99.6%, Location: Saint Petersburg, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 322336820153 Payment | Shipping | POLICIES AND INFORMATION ANTIQUE Vintage BRASS FIREPLACE ANDIRONS / MASSIVE Cannonball Finial Click to View Image Album Click to View Image Album Click to View Image Album Click to View Image Album Click to View Image Album Click to View Image Album Straight from a local estate. A massive and fine pair of ANTIQUE brass fireplace andirons. Blacksmith-forged wood supports are original. The log stops, feet, and secondary supports are all brass, just discolored from use. The only parts that are not brass are the horizontal log supports. This is an early pair. I have added a photo of the underside so that you can see that the tops are connected by a rod through the log stop and base. You will note that the rod bottom is peened or flattened with a hammer. This is a true indicator of age. Later 19th century andirons will have a rod that extends through the base with threads on the end, secured by a nut. An exceptional pair, unmarked, as best I can tell, and certainly worthy of further research. This pair is massive, and extremely heavy. Each stands 16 3/4" tall and 21" deep. The feet are 10 1/2" wide. Sold just as-found, uncleaned and unpolished, with original warm patina. The smooth surface is as good as I have seen. This set displays beautifully, with expected wear, surface scratches, and minor dings, but no repairs. One has a short split on the BACKSIDE, as seen in bottom photo, but this is not visible from the front. The other andiron is missing it's secondary brass foot. I am not an expert on antique brass, so please view photos for exact condition. These are easily disassembled, and will be shipped that way for safety. Guaranteed to be antique, and not a modern reproduction.
