Seller: attic41 (2,350) 100% Top-Rated Plus, Location: Avon, Connecticut, Ships to: US, Item: 302134121306 attic41 Store This is a rare pair of Antique late 18th or early 19th century Federal andirons, attributed to Richard Whittingham of New York. The Whittingham attribution is based on a Christie's Auction. An identical, or nearly identical pair of Andirons was sold by Christie's in its "Important American Furniture & Silver Sale", January 16th and 17th, 2003 in New York City. These large andirons measure about 22 1/2" tall, by 24" deep and weigh about 12 1/2 lbs. each. These andirons are among the finest made in the US during the Federal Period. The Urn detail is outstanding both on the large urns and small log-stop urns, which include reeding as well as other fine details. The rare 1/4 turn pierced gallery fence is a great detail, and is one of the details that gives this pair an attribution to Richard Whittingham. Another rare detail is that each leg has 3 spurs, instead of the more common 2 (or even 1). Hand file marks on the non-visible sections of brass, and the hand "peened" center post, guarantee these andirons as authentic Late 18th or early 19th century antique andirons. The condition of the andirons is excellent. The iron legs are fine and the brass sections are in excellent condition as well. All parts are 100% original. These rare andirons would make a great addition to someone who collects the finest Federal Era American antiques. Please check out my other Auctions as I am also selling two other outstanding and rare sets of Antique Iron andirons. Maker: Richard Whittingham, Material: Brass
