Rare Cast Iron Owl Andirons Glass Eyes Ps&w Excellent Must See Antiques For Sale

Rare Cast Iron Owl Andirons Glass Eyes  Ps&w Excellent Must See Antiques

Original Antique

Perched Owl Andirons

Yellow Glass Eyes

P S & W Co.

Peck Stow & Wilcox Company

I found these great Owl Andirons in my 94-year-old father’s estate. They’ve been in my family for as long as I can recall. I remember as a boy staring at the yellow glass eyes as the fire lit them from behind.

These very beautiful (and very heavy, each one almost 7 pounds) Perched Owl Andirons are in amazing condition. There are NO breaks, cracks or signs or past repairs. The yellow glass eyes look just like new, and the light of the fire makes them glow like the owl is alive!

It is rare to find all four glass eyes in PERFECT condition; there are no cracks, chips or scratches on the eyes.

The Owl measures 15.5’ tall and is 9.75” wide at the base. The firedog (the piece that the logs rest on) measures 14.75” long.

One of the firedogs is missing, they sell replacement firedogs at fireplace shops and it simply slides into a track on the back side of the andiron.

The markings on the inside of each andiron are

P S & W Co. There are two other markings a ‘G’ and ‘S’ stacked over one another to the left of the company stamp. (See Photo)

You may see others of these available but none are in as great condition as these with all for eyes in mint condition!

These andirons have a rich history from Southington, CT

Below is a history of the company;

The origin of the Peck, Stow & Wilcox Co. dates back to 1797. In that year Seth Peck, of Southington, Conn., commenced the manufacture of Tinsmiths' Machines, to take the place of hand tools exclusively used by tinsmiths before that date. By gradual growth the following firms have succeeded to that business: Seth Peck & Co., O. & X. Peck, Peck, Smith & Co. and the Peck-Smith Mfg. Co.

Up to this time the sole manufacture was tinsmiths' tools and machines. By 1870 the S. Stow Mfg. Co. of Plantsville, and the Roys & Wilcox Co. of East Berlin were competitors in that business. In December 1870, these three firms united and formed a joint stock company under the name of the Peck, Stow & Wilcox Co. In 1880 the firm was incorporated by special act of the General Assembly with an authorized capital of one and a half million dollars. Within a year that amount of capital was all paid in and Wilcox, Treadway & Co., of Cleveland, C, was absorbed by the firm.

The company now has factories in Southington, Plantsville and East Berlin, Conn., covering a floor space of about two hundred and sixty thousand square feet. and factories in Cleveland, O., covering about eighty-nine thousand feet more, making in all about seven and a half square acres.

Tinsmiths' tools and machines still constitute a prominent portion of the company's product, but a varied line has been gradually added. This now embraces as its principal items, carpenters, machinists and blacksmiths tools, housekeeping implements such as meat and food cutters, coffee mills and scale beams and a varied assortment of builders' hardware.

In 1950, the company was bought out by Billings & Spencer. The PEXTO logo is now used by RW Acquisition, L.L.C.

Payment by PAYPAL ONLY. Buyer pays S/H of $24.95. International shipping must be calculated. Alaska & Hawaii may be higher.
