As Winter time approaches, the need for indoor heating will become more important. For people with coal and wood burning fireplaces, fireplace bellows can often be a helpful addition to your hearth accessories. Sometimes a fire can take a little huffing and puffing to really get going and so instead of using lung power, these dark mahogany bellows can take over that task for you. You’ll have a roaring fire in no time at all which will warm the whole family.
A bellow of any kind is basically an instrument that delivers pressurized air to a particular point through a nozzle. The deformable container is opened and closed rapidly so as to draw air in through a one way inlet on the side and then to push air out through the outlet nozzle seen at the tip of the bellows in the picture above. Bellows have been used for centuries and were important tools for blacksmiths across Europe and Asia many hundreds of years ago.
These dark mahogany fireplace bellows are ideal for a traditional or Colonial-style hearth. The bellows are functional and good looking which means they can be hung up or placed above or beside the main fireplace when not in use. In fact, even if you don’t have a wood or coal burning fireplace, you can still use the bellows as a purely decorative feature just about anywhere in the home interior.
