description

A Monumental Pair of Bronze Andirons in The Renaiassance Manner of Niccolo Roccatagliata (Italian, 1593-1636).

Each andiron is modelled as a torchère on scrolling legs, decorated with lion masks and ‘C’-scrolls, flanked by a pair of putti supporting drapery and surmounted by a further large figure of a winged putto.

Their design is inspired by the celebrated model executed by the famed Renaissance Sculptor Nicolo Roccatagliata in the Museo Nazionale, Florence.

Provenance

These fine andirons formerly formed part of the furnishing of Château Montford, Cote d'Azur, France.

Château Montford was the Cote D’Azur residence of the late Severin Wunderman, the owner of Swiss luxury brand Corum. Originally a 16th century hunting lodge he spent considerable time and resources turning it into a treasure house for his extensive antique collection.
