Double brass jamb hook.  18th century.

The fireplace jamb refers to the side of the fireplace opening. Typically a pair of jamb hooks were affixed to the jamb to hold various fireplace tools upright and at the ready. This jamb hook is a rarer form with its double hooks, and a fine shape lending an elegance to a utilitarian functional piece of fireplace hardware.
