Two little fawns attempt to keep warm by brazier fire in this enchanting pair of French Louis XVI chenets, or fireplace andirons. Crafted of stunning doré and patinated bronze, these figures' delightful Neoclassical elegance is characteristic of Louis XVI design. Chenets were a staple of any well-appointed home, serving as both decorative and useful objects. They were placed in front of a fireplace to protect priceless rugs and flooring from rolling logs. Only the grandest homes would have had chenets as beautifully designed as these.
