Fireplace tool sets

A fireplace tool set comes with a collection of fire tools including tongs, a poker, a shovel, and occasionally, a stand for convenient storage. Some fireplace sets might omit the poker or shovel. While antique fireplace brushes and bellows are often sold separately, tongs are a staple in nearly every fireplace toolset. Fireplace sets without a stand are designed to lay neatly in the hearth or log holder, or to stand discreetly in a corner near the fireplace. For those with a support, options include a stand, racks or rests to organize and display the tools neatly. Explore our selection of over 200 fireplace tools sets, varying in size, material, cost, design, and origin.

Appreciate the craftsmanship

Antique fireplace sets are true showcases of craftsmanship. The time-intensive forging process involves creativity and skills rarely matched by modern methods. Both simple hand-forged pieces and complex designs adhere to these exacting standards. More than just visually appealing, these antique fire set tools boast durability that modern tools can't match, enduring through time. They're designed to be not only cherished but also to serve for generations.

Choose the right fireplace tools set

Proper fireplace tools are vital for safe, sustainable fires and maintaining a steady burn. Tongs are crucial for repositioning logs, while pokers increase oxygen flow to enhance the flame. Shovels manage ash levels, preventing smothering or loss of insulation that can dampen the fire's draw. For guidance on picking the best tools, explore: Which fireplace tools do you need?

Consider the length of the fireplace set

The size of your fire dictates the length of your tools. Ensure your set is long enough to handle the fire safely. Filter your choices by tool length.

Consider the shape of the fire tools

Our vintage and antique fireplace sets, hailing from England, France, or the Netherlands/Belgium, reflect their origins. For instance, French tongs often forgo the hinge found in English and Dutch/Belgian designs and are typically more robust. Conversely, Dutch/Belgian tools tend to be smaller in scale.

Consider the decorative function of a fireplace toolset

An antique set can substantially elevate the aesthetic of any fireplace or wood stove. A well-chosen set can imbue even a non-wood-burning fireplace with charm. When selecting, consider the harmony between the set and your existing accessories, such as firebacks, andirons, and wood holders. Contemplate the set's robustness, elegance, material, finish, and how its support complements your setup. For decoration tips, read: How do I decorate my fireplace?
