Description

WOW! Take a look at these excellent antique Hessian Soldier Andirons and matching fireplace tools! What a stylish and interesting way to decorate your fireplace. Sure to be a conversation piece for many years to come. Dating from right around the turn of the century, these nicely detailed cast iron figures depict marching Hessian (German) soldiers that represented about 25% of the British armed forces during the Revolutionary War. The Hessians thereafter became viewed as the enemy of the American people, which is probably why these pieces were popular to have placed near the flames of your fireplace. Made in the USA, these high quality andirons and tools are of significant weight and mass. Buy them today and cherish them for a lifetime!

NOTE: The lose tool topper handle has a smaller diameter hole at the bottom than the other two handles which leads us to believe that it was intended as a handle for the missing tool caddy.

CONDITION: In great vintage condition with some original paint still seen. Structurally sound pieces WITHOUT any cracks or other major physical imperfections. Some superficial rust seen. ALL ORIGINAL COMPONENTS !

MEASUREMENTS: Andiron - 19.5" tall x 10.5" wide x 18.5" deep
Weight (each) 9 lbs. 13.3 oz.
Tools: 30" tall
