A beautifully detailed pair of bronze andirons featuring seated pixies or brownies, cast in bronze from the 1911 originals.
 

These creatures of English and Scottish folklore were said to live in the house and help with household chores while the owners slept, in exchange for gifts of food. In the late 1800s, the drawing and poems of Canadian artist Palmer Cox popularized the brownies, leading to the naming of the junior Girl Guide organization and the Eastman Kodak "Brownie" camera.
