Expert advice

Classification: ***: Very good condition, limited wear given the age and use. **: Clear signs of wear and possible structural problems including small instabilities. Still well suited for use in an open fireplace. *: Structural instability that hinders function other than decorative. For example, open fireplace tongs with a loose mechanism so that the ends can overlap. A fireback in this classification can still be used in a gas fireplace or as a backsplash. Should you want additional information about the quality or the classification of a specific fireplace accessory, do not hesitate to ask.

If an old or antique fireplace accessory has a nice brown patina of rust, we tend to preserve that; thus the items remains brown. In all other instances, our firebacks and andirons have been treated with stove polish and thereby have a black/greyish color. If you prefer to have a black-colored fireback or pair of andirons, we can deliver any brown fireback or pair of andirons in black. Yet, a black fireplace accessory cannot be delivered in brown. Realize that a fireback in use in a fireplace will get black in its central section regardless.
