19th C Painted Bellows

19th C Painted Bellows

  • Beautifully painted on both sides, sometime in the 1840s.

    Working bellows, leather is in tact and it blows well.

    Front id in bittersweet with a pear in a cornucopia in gold and black.

    The back is also painted bittersweet with black swirls around the hold.

    Original leather hanging rope and brass tip.

    Tip is a bit loose but this does not interfere with its work.

    Minor paint wear, still a great folk art piece.

    17" long, 6 3/4" wide at it widest

    Found in Massachusetts and dating from the 1840s.
