Antique Fire Dogs with Twin Wheel Spits and Cup Dogs


Our Stock # LFA-1488

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.
