Chip carving is a very old form of decorative woodwork. It originated in northern Europe and Scandinavia, places that would benefit from a wellmade pair of fireplace bellows. Chip carving is done with a knife instead of chisels, and rosette designs are both popular and traditional.
Our chip carved fireplace bellows is handcarved out of basswood. For this version, Roy was curious to see what the bellows would look like if he painted them. The body of the bellows is white, with the two chip carved designs red, blue, green, and yellow. We hope you'll like the result.
Like all of our bellows, the bag consists of 2-3 ounce leather, very supple and able to produce a strong draft. We build the bellows with a strong steel hinge (covered by the leather) for dependability and a long life. They come with a rawhide lace tied to the handle, making them easy to display. They measure 20-1/4" long, 7-3/8" wide, 5" deep when open, and 2" deep when closed.
