Cast Iron Cowboy AndironsBy Mark Chervenka
Cast Iron Cowboy Andirons
The southwest and cowboy decorating craze apparently inspired these new cast iron cowboy andirons. Height 19", 12" wide and 19" front to back. Made in the United States by a New England blacksmith shop.
We couldn't find any old pair that resembles these. Other 19th century figural andirons such as sunflowers, black slaves, dogs and others have brought as much as $3500. These could slip out into the secondary market and give somebody a nasty surprise. Be careful what you bring into your bunkhouse, partner.
