Handcrafted Copper Chimney Pots

Andy Preske of The Copper Shop stopped by the office Wednesday with one of his beautiful copper chimney pots. Andy’s family has been involved in metal crafting since the 1890s, and it shows. This Tudor pot was just stunning. We’re proud to sell Andy’s fantastic work.

Mother's Day Gifts Mom Will Love

Mother’s Day is next weekend! If your mother has a fireplace, here are Mother’s Day gifts mom will love.

Give Mom a real treat this Mother’s Day with one of these gifts.

1. Hearth CricketsBrass Hearth Crickets

Hearth Crickets are a traditional sign of good luck. In Charles Dickens’ story “The Cricket on the Hearth,” a cricket sits on the Peerybingle family’s hearth and chirps. While many would find this extremely annoying, the cricket acts as a guardian angel to the family and brings them good luck. Give Mom the gift of good luck without the annoying chirping with one of our brass Hearth Crickets.

2. Spandrels CandelabraSpandels Candelabra

Mom will love the graceful lines of the Spandrels Candelabra. Our most popular candelabra, the Spandrels holds 10 candles at varying heights to fill the fireplace with candlelight. The large, 4-inch candle cups hold many types of candles, including electric candles, so Mom can experiment with her decorating.

3. Arboretum CandelabraArboretum Fireplace Candelabra

Want to really wow Mom this Mother’s Day? This elegant Arboretum Fireplace Candelabra will remind Mom of a forest on a clear winter night, as stars shine through the trees. Throughout the “branches” are small glass beads that reflect the candlelight, making the branches sparkle.

4. Pine Branched Fireplace Mantel Mirror

Mom can hang this handcrafted decorative mirror over the fireplace for a wonderful accent to the room. Actually, she can hang it anywhere she wants since it’s Mother’s Day. But we think it looks great over a fireplace. The Pine Branched Mirror is handcrafted by American metal crafters at Stone County Ironworks and features delicately crafted pine cones and needles, with beautifully textured branches.
