Each owl features round glass eyes that light up from the flames of the fire. The andirons are un-marked but most likely the work of Howes Foundry of Boston, Mass. The andirons are in good antique condition, with wear and patina commensurate with age and type of use.
There is mild oxidation to cast iron. The andirons do not come with log holders.
One of the andirons is missing part of the log holder insert (see last photo). The glass eyes have been painted over (paint can be easily removed). Dimensions: 21" in height, 11" in length, and 2-1/2 in depth.
