Andiron

1875


Andirons are a common fireplace furnishing. This pair is made of iron and is used to lift and support logs inside a fireplace. Since the andirons raise the firewood, air passes underneath the logs and helps the logs burn efficiently. Andirons not only keep the firewood in place but also can add decoration and style to a room.
