Original cast iron andirons in the form of Hessian Soldiers marching in review with their swords held high. The best-known pattern of early 19th century cast andirons is that of Hessian Soldiers. It is believed that these were inspired by the dislike of the mercenary troops brought here by the British in the American Revolution. Hence, they were being burned in effigy. American, circa 1900. 20" H. X 9-1/2" W. X 17" D. overall. We accept time payments and quantity discounts. We have many other pairs of period brass and figural cast iron andirons in stock. Please call to inquire. We accept time payments and quantity discounts. ** WE GUARANTEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF OUR MERCHANDISE AS REPRESENTED.
