Blackforest? Fireplace Fire Place Figural Carved Wood Lion Of St Mark Bellows ~ For Sale

Blackforest? Fireplace Fire Place Figural Carved Wood Lion Of St Mark Bellows ~

I HAVE A NICE PAIR OF REALLY OLD WOODEN BELLOWS HERE, THEY ARE CARVED IN RELIEF OF THE LION OF ST MARK'S, I AM UNCLEAR IF THEY ARE GERMAN, ITALIAN OR BRITISH, THE SENTIMENT FOR SURE IS ITALIAN BEING THAT IT IS HAS A LATIN PHRASE ANYWAY, YOU BE THE JUDGE, THERE IS SOME DAMAGE, THE HANGING LEATHER PART IS SPLIT, THERE IS A SPLIT IN THE LEATHER ON ONE SIDE THOUGH NOT IN THE BELLOE AREAAND THE WOOD HAS SCRATCHES TO THE BACKSIDE, IT MEASURES 17" LONG BY 7 1/2" WIDE.

UPON RECEIVING A QUESTION ABOUT THESE BELLOWS AND FURTHER INSPECTION I NOTICED THAT THERE IS A SMALL PIECE OF WOOD MISSING FROM THE TOP OF ONE OF THE LIONS HEAD HANDLES, IT IS THE ONE ON THE RIGHT SIDE.

On Mar-28-13 at 15:34:40 PDT, seller added the following information:

IN RESPONSE TO SOME EMAILS I AM GETTING REGARDING THE CONDITION OF THESE BELLOWS, THEY WERE MADE ROUGHLY BETWEEN THE MID TO LATE 1800'S, THEY ARE MADE OF WOOD AND LEATHER AND THEY WERE USED, AFTERALL WE DO KNOW THAT BACK IN THE DAYS OF YORE FOLKS HEATED THEIR HOMES USING THE FIREPLACE, THEREFORE IT IS SAFE TO ASSUME THAT ITEMS MADE OF WOOD AND LEATHER SUCH AS THESE BELLOWS MIGHT DRY OUT, MIGHT GET CHIPPED AND MIGHT GET SCRATCHES, ITS THE NATURE OF THE BEAST, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING IN MINT CONDITION, SOMETHING IN AN ORIGINAL BOX OR SOMETHING WITH PAPERS THEN THAT IS NOT THESE BELLOWS, THESE ARE AN ANTIQUE THAT WAS USED TO KEEP THE FIRES GOING, FOLKS WARM AND I'M SURE AS A DECORATION ABOVE OR BY THE MANTLE.
