About Antique Fireplace Tools
Past winters left you tooling around with nothing to do, but this season, antique fireplace tools can keep you busy. After all, you love your fireplace but need to keep it clean. Antique fireplace tools come in sets that include pokers, shovels, brushes, pans, and tongs. You might find a set with bellows, which keep fires going with oxygenated air. These sets add a charming look to old fireplaces and rooms with Gothic, Victorian, French, and Classic designs. Most sets include stands to hold and organize the accompanying tools as well. Tools and stands often come in sturdy, fire-resistant materials like cast iron and steel. Some, like antique brass fireplace tools, feature ornate decorations, achieved with brass-coated finials for a polished and elegant look. Look for these fireplace tools on eBay, where reliable sellers maintain a large inventory of new and used products. You can create a simple but elegant look with tools featuring curved handles or make cleaning extra fun with a set of tools covered with duck or other animal heads. Let the fire warm your heart and home.
