Antique brass fire dogs with Olympic torches
A late 19th / early 20th century pair of fire dogs, the tops modeled after Olympic torches. Their colouring is quite dark, almost a bronze tone, and I have left them unpolished. They are very good looking and heavy and would make a great addition to a living room fireplace, be it for function or design.
Condition: Functional and attractive - one of the torches feels loose, like the screw thread inside snapped, but even when lifting it is staying in place. There looks to have been a fairly fresh cut made to the back (pictured) on the foot. Uncleaned and with some little white paint spots.
Size: 19.5 inches tall
weight: 4.2 kg for the pair
