Fire Dogs & Baskets

 

For centuries firedogs have been used to support the ends of burning logs on hearths of fireplaces. Logs tended to roll out from the centres of the fireplaces. To prevent this from happening, cast iron baskets were used. These have front grates, which keep logs within the baskets. Mounting baskets onto firedogs provides room for ash pans to be placed under the basket. There are four types of firedogs to choose from, Fleu-de-lys, Regency, Methuselah and the Torch. We manufacture two types of Fire Baskets, U-shaped and L-shaped in two different styles
