Antique Andirons Cast Iron circa 1880s Owls On Perch Glass Eyes
Offered for sale is a matched pair of heavy antique cast iron fireplace andirons depicting nicely detailed decorative owls on a perch, each with thick glass marble-like yellowish gold eyes (3 are cracked as shown in my photos.) Die cast impressed markings on firedogs say either 3000 or 8000. There are other markings verso but I cannot exactly decipher them. These have been used and loved. They are covered with decades of gunk, grime, and marvelous patina! Some superficial rust but overall in VERY GOOD CONDITION! Owls measures approximately 15 inches tall and 9 inches across the widest portion of the bottom. Resting portion measures approximately 15.5 inches.
I bought these wonderful period Victorian era Owl Andirons from a friend’s 90-year-old aunt’s estate. They’d been in her familyfor decades.
A Google image search of owl fire dogs will show many examples.
