This is an antique pair of fire dogs dating to the end of the Victorian period circa 1900.

A fine pair of iron dogs with arched front feet for stability, the front posts rise high with scrolled decoration up to a pair of cup dogs; originally used to keep small pots or drinks warm.

The front of each post has three spit racks to accommodate the spits in various positions. At the end of each rod is a wheel that would have been used to turn the spit by means of either a smoke-jack, a device that generated movement from the chimney draught, or a separate dog wheel where a small dog would have been in something akin to a hamster wheel to generate the motive force.

Polished in a traditional graphite finish these dogs are supplied ready for the home.

Max width 130cm (51.25'')
Max depth 51cm (20'')
Max height 86cm (33.75'')
