Fireplace andirons are decorative fireplace accessories that add vintage style to any hearth. With their simple wrought iron square form, bolt heads and loop hangers, they resemble early sixteenth century fireplace grates from the time when andirons were first in use. These simple andirons draw to mind roaring fires of simpler, more primitive times, medieval castles and country cottages. They are the perfect accent piece for rustic or period-themed spaces, adding a bit of old world or heirloom fashion to an otherwise empty hearth. Made from high quality materials, they are just as effective at encouraging cozy fires as they are at creating a focal point in non-functioning fireplaces and hearthstones.
