Cast iron andirons in the form of Hessian Soldiers, 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, these are solid cast, not hollowed out in the rear, and unlike any others we have seen, unmarked but most likely American and late 19th or early 20th century, with old paint showing wear consistent with their age, 11" H. X 6-1/2" W. X 15" D. We accept time payments and quantity discounts. ** WE GUARANTEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF OUR MERCHANDISE AS REPRESENTED.
