I got these from my father years ago. I know they are from the late 1800's to early 1900's. Other than that I don't know much about these. Could anyone give me information on these. Any idea of value?

    If they are in fact from the 1800's, and not reproductions, you have a nice pair of andirons!

    How do you tell if they are reproductions?

    Maybe find some books on andirons and read up on them.

    They are called black seamen from about 1870

    Post some additional close up photos of the front to see the details of the items along with some of the back to include the attachment to the arms and someone will be able to ID the age and determine if they are new.
