This auction is for a fabulous set of early Victorian antique brass fire irons comprising:

a. Poker
b. Fire tongs for handling coal and logs
c. Ash shovel

This set of conforming fire irons (or fire tools) is not only fully functional and utilitarian but also beautifully proportioned with elegant lines and excellent patina.
