Period French Gothic Andirons

These rare fabulous antique chenets or andirons are from the French Gothic Period, most likely late Gothic .  Their headdress was called a barbette.  The two people are holding a shield in front of their chests and their dress is of the period.  The shield has remnants of motifs but they are not definable due to centuries of use in a fireplace.

French chenets or andirons of this period are very rare—they will be an asset to any home.

Condition:  Consistent with age, wear to relief, rusting of iron, blemishes to iron.
