FINE PAIR OF GEORGE WASHINGTON FULL BODIED ANTIQUE CAST IRON ANDIRONS. We take the utmost honor in offering you this fantastic pair of very early 19th Century cast iron George Washington andirons. This pair has a great completely untouched original black paint surface. The image of Washington is that from a famed Gilbert Stuart portrait painting of Washington leaning with his hat held in his hand down by his hip. We note a charming old casting flaw on the specimen depicted on the right side corner base of the first picture image provided here.Each andiron is 21" 1/2" tall, 9" wide at its footed base and has 20 1/2" deep firedogs. These are made in two pieces with the bodies in one solid cast form and the firedogs are fastened by a channel slot on the back of the andirons. We encounter a few pairs of these each year and for the amount of ground we collectively cover that means, to us, they are fairly rare and not commonly available. The ones we do find come from America's very best estates. Bay Colony Antiques is a dedicated group of New England antique dealers from Springfield, Massachusetts.
