Heavy antique pair of french andirons early 1900's cast iron Empire style sphynx
France, early 1900's, cast iron. Height (each) : 7.5 in. Depth (each) : 17.5 in. Weight (the pair) : 16 lb. Good overall condition, really heavy. My name is Greg, I'm a French guy who had business in Charlotte NC for 3 years. Unfortunately, I had to move back to France because of a slow activity. I fell in love with the US, particulary Charlotte! So now my only goal is to return to Charlotte, and for that I want to export French furnitures and antiques there!
This idea came because of my love for wood and history. It is a great area to find valuable furnitures and smalls because of the proximity of wealthy ski resorts like Megève and Chamonix Mont-Blanc. It is also close to Geneva (switzerland), about 45minutes by car. The Geneva area is one of the richest in Europe due to finance and whatchmaking. Italy's not to far as well, 40 minutes.
So when you're living and picking in this kind of environment, It is not rare to come across real pieces of art and history. This item is in the category "Antiques\Other Antiques". The seller is "2ways-xport" and is located in this country: FR.
This item can be shipped worldwide.
