Superb antique French early to mid 800s Victorian or Napoleon III era fireplace bellows, ebonized jet black finish with lovely musical instrument themed brass boulle style inlay & red leather baffles! A rare style, the last similar piece we offered sold back in 2019. That one with boulle inlaid facade but nearly identical in size & shaping. There are a few small tears or holes in the red leather baffles but they're original and, age considered, in great shape. Restore if you want to actually use but the real value here is in the decorative aspect. Fabulous & rare!
Very good condition, age considered. As noted above, there are a few holes/tears in the leather baffles (shown in the images). Also, the rear handle has a repaired break where it meets the larger side panel. See pictures for all measurements.
