Fire Dogs, Baskets & Grates
We always have a selection of Fire dogs, baskets & grates in stock. These can all vary considerably in sizes and styles to suit varying fireplaces. Fire dogs (also known as andirons) can be used to hold baskets or, on their own, give that wonderful ‘country pub’ look holding large slow burning logs. Sizes are listed width x depth x height and are taken at the largest point.
