Pair of important Black American Folk Art cast iron andirons. This is a very rare pair of Black memorabilia just recently found in an estate in Georgia. Excellent as found original untouched condition. Each andiron measures 15 inches deep,13 and three quarters high and 9 and one half inches across the base. We believe they are post 1852 which is when Harriet Beecher Stowe published Uncle Toms Cabin which sold millions of copies and created many black collectibles at that time.
