    A pair of Aesthetic Movement andirons attributed to Thomas Jekyll and possibly made by Barnard, Bishop and Barnards. Although unmarked, they possess the qualities of Jekyll's designs, with his signature use of Japanese mons within the decoration on the shafts. The rosettes symbolise night and day and with beautiful repoussé work a Kingfisher on a branch represents Day, or dawn, with the sun rising behind him, whilst the owl represents Night and is surrounded by stars.
    English, c.1875.

    Notes: Barnard, Bishop and Barnards were at the heart of Norwich's iron industry, and the company gained an international reputation after their collaboration with Thomas Jekyll.
    Jeckyll’s associations with a group of London artists – notably James Abbott McNeill Whistler – made him a key figure in the Anglo-Japanese Aesthetic Movement. Jeckyll used japonaise designs for Barnards’ fireplaces while his sunflower motif came to symbolise the Aesthetic Movement.

    A very rare pair of 17th century Charles II enameled brass andirons or fire dogs.

    The uppermost decoration depicts the royal arms, which is supported by two nude male figures, between which is a vase of flowers. The andirons terminate in two disks also decorated with flowers, possibly tulips and roses.

    Attributed to the workshops of Anthony Hatch and Stephen Pilcherd. Hatch was a well-known member of the Armourers and Braziers Company and worked with Pilcherd on the low-volume production of enamel ware, which would have been very expensive at the time.

    Firedogs of cast brass decorated with red, blue and white enamel, with wrought iron supports, bearing the arms of Charles II or James II. The brass front is in 4 parts, the uppermost containing the royal arms, the middle part formed of two nude male figures supporting the arms with a vase of flowers between them, the lower portions in the form of two convex disks decorated with tulips and other flowers. Unlike cloisonné decoration, the enameled fields were cast in the mould.

    London, c. 1660-1688.
