This is a remarkable set of antique hand-forged iron andirons, dating from the 1800’s. These beautifully crafted andirons are hand-forged and hand-riveted, and come with a poker and a small iron kettle. One andiron has a swinging bracket, which supports the pot. Each andiron begins with a band arched and hammered to form two feet. Fastened to the main post just above the feet is a riveted appliqué, used to hold the poker. The sturdy, squared body of the andiron rises from the feet and angles inward into a round pole. The pole is encircled by two grooved bands, which support the swinging bracket on one of the andirons. The pole is capped with a crown-like ornament composed of four hammered, scalloped bands riveted to a ring. These andirons are in excellent condition and have a beautifully aged patina. The poker is also in excellent condition, and the pot is in very good antique condition, with some rust and other indications of age. The andirons measure tall and 13 ½” wide, and the log supports extend 23 ¼”. The poker is 42” long, and the pot is approximately 7” in diameter.
