From the start of the Colonial period to about when fireplaces were superseded by stoves, andirons were taken-for-granted household items. For two hundred years American homes depended on wood-burning fireplaces for heat and cooking. Andirons were essential. Probably they were among the necessities brought over by the first settlers. Just when they were first made here is unknown but those of wrought iron must have been produced for local needs about as soon as the first blacksmiths set up their forges.

These artisans played a potent role in the making of America. Home and farm depended on the tools and other necessary items formed on their anvils. In fact, the two evidences that a town was an established community instead of a frontier outpost were a “settled” clergyman and a blacksmith with forge in working order. The blacksmith made all the fireplace tools and his andirons were of two kinds, those entirely of wrought iron and those with brass uprights and wrought iron leg rests.

Most of the brass uprights before the American Revolution were imported from England and then fitted with suitable shafts and log rests by the local blacksmith. Shapes and patterns in the wrought iron andirons changed little.

Andirons are constructed of metal to hold flaming firewood slightly above the firebox floor to improve fireplace draw and ventilation. They typically stand upon two front legs connected to a central iron shaft, called a “dog” or “billet bar” which has a bent end to form the back foot. The andiron dogs or billet bars keep the flaming logs in the firebox of the fireplace as they burn and settle.
