Original cast iron andirons in the form of Hessian Soldiers The best-known pattern of early 19th century cast andirons is that of Hessian Soldiers. It is believed that they were inspired by the dislike of the mercenary troops brought here by the British in the American Revolution. Hence, they were being burned in effigy. American, circa 1900. 19" H. X 9" W. X 22" D. overall.
