Here for sale is a fantastic cast iron andiron or fireiron. It is very much in the style of Thomas Jekyll, who was a famous architect who who excelled in the creation of metalwork and furniture strongly influenced by Japanese design. It has a wonderful pair of birds very much typical of the aesthetic movement. The diamond stamp on the base is the registration mark for 4th January 1878. This stunning piece is unmarked but is probably the work of Barnard, Bishop & Barnard of Norwich, England. 

Although this is only one fireiron it has a wonderful original patina with its original paint intact. Perfect as a piece of art sculpture to stage in the home to add character to a space.


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
