What are tools in general used for? Well, to fix, build and maintain things, of course. What do many Americans have in their homes? Not entirely as a necessity but also part of a generations-long tradition, many American homes will have their fireplace. They will have their tool sheds too. If not that, then at least a full-sized garage with ample room to store the tools in. Some Americans should be so lucky. They will have in their homes an attractive looking vintage fireplace.
Especially during the coldest weeks of winter, and to match perfectly the vintage fireplace, these privileged homes will have its vintage fireplace tools with which to stoke hot fires with. This keeps homes located in the coldest areas of the country warm, cozy and safe. Yes, safe too. No fireplace, vintage or modern, should be without its tools. What if hot coals should accidentally fall over that antique rug?
Sparks could fly, and a whole house could burn down, not so? But with tools to hand, that scenario becomes less likely. Arguments have abounded in general about the makeshift tools that have perceptively only been designed to fulfill aesthetic purposes rather than serve its true purposes of fixing, repairing and building. That may be, but about vintage tools. How have the pioneers of old being doing things.
There were no problems, were there. Fires were made, tended to, and when repair and cleanup operations were required, these were seen to effectively as well. So, having a vintage fireplace, and the so-called makeshift vintage tools to go along with it – they look quite nice by the fireside too, don’t they – should pose no problems whatsoever for safety conscious homeowners. Excellence prevails in the sense that both practical and aesthetic functions are taken care of.
