Pair of Gothic Andirons

French, 15th/16th c.

Cast Iron. Heavy, heavy, heavy! Aged, worn, untouched surface. Each topped with a figure (a minstrel playing a harp?) and with gothic-arched feet. Listen to them "sing" in a roaring fire! Found many years ago in the basement of a house in Swansea, RI. In a private collection ever since. Good original condition with lots of wear. No restoration.

24" h x 8-3/4" w x 16" deep.
