Here are a couple of ads from arts & architecture magazine in 1955 for fire tools designed by Mel Bogart for Stewart-Winthrop of Van Nuys, California. You may recall Mel as the designer of the cool iron ashtray stand I blogged about earlier.

It appears that the tools were selected for the prestigious “Good Design” exhibitions created and promoted in the early 50’s by New York City’s MoMA and the Merchandise Mart in Chicago.

I love that curvy sine wave thing that the fire grate has going on!
