Zimmerman, was known for his paperweights and some of his art glass can be found in Art Institute of Chicago and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. Each Andiron has a large round art glass orb, as well as a longer oblong matching glass orb with white Calla Lily flowers and controlled air bubbles. There are no problems or repairs to the glass and the brass still retains its original old patina.
The three piece fireplace tool set and holder are also in very good, original condition with no problems or repairs. The brush has some minor signs of use, but is in very good original condition. The three pieces (not the brush) have matching white calla lily glass orbs, however if you look closely to the holder and poker orb they have some discoloration to the glue deep inside the glass.
