Pair of American Brass Andirons With Old Surface, Ca. 1820

USA Ca. 1820

A pair of urn and spire Federal Period andirons that were most likely made in New York. These appear to have not been polished for at least one hundred years. Like brass left out in the weather they have acquired a dark brown/green color with frosted light green highlights. For similar examples with left and right galleries see Shiffer’s “The Brass Book” page 74
