Bellows – three sizes
At Market Lavington Museum, we have a small pair of bellows hanging beside the kitchen range.
You can read all about Bellows and see a photo of Mrs Gale’s slightly larger pair, which has been stored away in a box. Now that our reorganisation has revealed an upstairs fireplace, we could consider putting her bellows on display up there.
Here is that household pair of bellows totally dwarfed by the blacksmith’s bellows, which will be seen by visitors as they come through the museum door.
See Blow the fire, blacksmith for more about these.
