Andirons, or "fire dogs" as they are sometimes known, are placed on the floor of a fireplace to allow airflow under the logs so they light more easily, burn more efficiently and produce less smoke. Andirons can also help keep the fire safely contained by preventing logs from rolling out of the hearth.
Rather than the usual single-shank design, ours have double shanks that provide better support, even for shorter pieces of firewood. Formed from solid 1/2" diameter stainless-steel rod with an electropolished finish, they have the mass needed to remain firmly in place, yet are easy to move aside when it’s time to clean out the ashes.
A simple, practical gift for anyone with a fireplace. 16 1/2" × 4" × 4" high. Sold in pairs.
