These large figural, solid bronze andirons depict Greek mythological figures of a Satyr and a Maenad. Their scale, casting details and superb quality makes these show stoppers! Look closely at the Satyr and notice the small horns in his curly hair; the hooked nose and pointing chin; his goat skin wrap; his flute and staff and the pine cones (or is it hops?) around his waist. The female or Maenad is known for her revelry. Such as indulging in wine, playing music and running wild in the woods. These are represented by her scant clothing; her tambourine or cymbal; the grape clusters and leaves along her waist and her thyrsus (a long stick wrapped in vine leaves and topped with a pinecone). The andirons retain their cast iron log supports which are in excellent condition. The bronze figures are also in excellent condition having a very desirable aged patina and color. 23"h X 7"w X 23"d, Condition: Excellent, Circa: 1880's.
