The andirons feature oval lemon finials which sit on a Doric column with plinth, and the cast arched legs with spurs rest on finely formed slipper pad feet.

The miniature lemon top log stop log rest is peened into the log rest 3" behind the fire dog. The andirons are paired with matching fire tools, consisting of a forged iron shovel and forged iron fire tongs with bell metal lemon finial topped handles.
