This rare and outstanding pair of 17th Century Andirons were made in France during the Louis 14th period dating to around 1675. They are of wrought iron construction and the “grain” of the iron can easily be seen on the legs. They feature a complicated hand cut joining system in which all three components are fastened together; the log bars, feet and finials, allowing them to be completely disassembled during their period of usage. The ball top finials were forged and turned, not cast, as you can still see the chuck marks on top of the ball. These andirons are in outstanding original condition with no repairs or damages whatsoever. They measure 11 3/4″ in height, 14 3/4″ in depth and have a width of 9 5/8″ at the feet.
