The set includes an original ornate unique shovel, and a pair of tongs, the holder, and a poker. The original tag is still on the bottom.

The stand features a hunting dog which is lying down at the front of the base. Behind the dog is a hunting rifle leaning up against a tree trunk, and the hunter's game, a single rabbit, completes the scene on the base. The branches and leaves of the tree form the ornate arms that hold the tools in place.
The shovel and tongs are each capped with finials, and leaves decorate the handles to match the top of the main holder.The solid hexagonal top of the rods on the tools are ornately finished while the stems are all vertically ribbed.
This lovely piece will be a wonderful addition to a hearth of a cabin or farmhouse to add a lovely antique statement to any special area. This item would be from the mid 1900's and crafted in Italy from Decorative Crafts and imported to the USA.
