Guest Book
Hessian Soldier Andirons of cast iron, Early 20th Century. The paint decoration appears to be of a later date. There is no damage or repair. These were the best known pattern of early 19th Century cast iron andirons and it is thought that because the real Hessian Soldiers, who fought against the Colonists during the American Revolution, were so disliked that the Americans enjoyed burning them in effigy in their fireplaces. ** WE GUARANTEE THE AUTHENTICITY OF OUR MERCHANDISE AS REPRESENTED ** 420212568TB171BX
