Pair of Period Gothic Andirons from France, 15th Century

These fabulous antique chenets or andirons are from the French Gothic Period, sometime around the end of the 15th century. The two figures are in typical Medieval style, with a robe and French Barbette headdress. Each is holding a shield, and in the center, toward the bottom, we can see traces of worn coats of arms. French fireplace andirons of this period are rare, as most have not lasted the test of time. They were in a rusted black paint condition, but we added some French wax to add a nice sheen which helps bring out the details.

CONDITION: Good condition with some wear to details. Rear support bars may have been replaced at one point
