Pair of silver and brown bronze andirons with standing lions

Height: 31'' ⅛  79cm

19th century.

Good condition.

Pair of cast iron andirons composed of two parts, each in a different patina, made at the end of the 19th century. The front part, in silver patina, stands on two stylized feet in the shape of a lion's paw, supporting a half-circle in which a lion stands on its two hind legs. These roaring lions are depicted in profile, raising a paw to their mouths. The second part of the chenet, in brown patina, also rests on two feet supporting an obelisk framed by sinuous lines and plant motifs, and topped by a peak with plant decoration. The obelisk has a red coat of arms on the lions' heads, topped by a gold cast iron band. This coat of arms could refer to the House of Noailles, a prominen French noble family from the Limousin. However, the heraldic lion is not represented on the family coat of arms.
