About the Item

Set of mid-20th century Modern wrought iron gilted andirons by french metalworker and decorator Gilbert Poillerat By: Gilbert Poillerat Material: iron, metal, wrought iron Technique: forged, hammered, gilt, patinated, metalwork, cast Dimensions: 8 in x 29.5 in x 21 in Date: mid-20th century, 1940-1949 Style: Mid-Century Modern, Art Déco, Neoclassicism, Revival Place of origin: France These mid-20th century wrought iron gilt andirons were designed by the renowned french metalworker Gilbert Poillerat. Forged with hammered iron and accented by large gilded spheres at the top, they embody Poillerat's distinctive style which blended historical and natural influences. As one of the leading iron masters and designers of his era, Poillerat drew inspiration from architectural forms and organic motifs to create elegant furnishings distinguished by their graceful proportions. He frequently incorporated decorative touches like twisted ropes, stars, and astrolabes wrought in delicate metalwork. The andirons exemplify his mature style in the postwar years, when he produced some of his most iconic designs. Poillerat's creations embodied the sleek classicism and craftsmanship that defined french decorative arts in the mid-century period. His collaborations with prominent designers like Jacques Adnet attest to his reputation and influence as both artist and artisan during this prolific phase of his career. The andirons stand as fine examples of Poillerat's inimitable ability to blend functionality and aesthetic sophistication. When fully extended, the andirons measure 18 in x 32 in x 21 in.
