Fireplace Andirons

Also known as "firedogs" because they approximate the forward, leggy stance of a dog, andirons are the support system used in a fireplace to hold the logs while they burn. The horizontal shank keeps the logs aloft for better burning, and the ornamental vertical bar holds the logs in place. Heavy duty, yet decorative, andirons can add personalized panache when replacing a standard cradle log holder. Andirons are available in a variety of designs that can be very decorative as well as useful.

Here are a few things to look for when purchasing a pair for your fireplace.
