Fireplace Bellows Restoration
This is probably early 20th Century, the pseudo-heraldic carving on both sides of the bellows looked to be hand done.
It arrived with rotting leather and age and smoke-blackened wood.
And contained a surprise. Which wasn't Lyme's Disease, neither.
Before replacing the leather – both the bellow itself and the hinge, also of leather – I gently cleansed the two sides of the bellows, then gave them a couple of coats of shellac.
You be the judge.
