These two types of fire irons or fire place pokers were used to tend a fire at the Grinter House in Wyandotte County. The Grinter House is a two-story brick home overlooking the Delaware Crossing on the Kansas River, and is now in the National Register of Historic Places. Moses and Annie Grinter (she was a Lenape Delaware) owned and operated a ferry and trading post there. Now it is an historic site overseen by the Kansas Historical Society.

Date: 1855-1950
