Bespoke Bellows Deposit
Bellows are an inspired idea for gifts or marking an occasion – especially if crafted particularly for that person, a family or for an event. Or, made specifically for your own fire!
Latest 2021 commission was for a 60th birthday gift, and the client sent these kind words:
I have just received my bellows which I commissioned Anne to make as a present for my husband. They are simply stunning – I am super pleased with them. Anne was easy and very helpful throughout the whole process. … The whole experience felt very personal.
I’m very happy that I have such a unique and bespoke gift to give to my husband for his 60th birthday. Thank you Anne 🙂
Time is needed to create bespoke bellows, so contact us well in advance of your needs. If you are short on time, select from the Bellows for Sale that are ready to dispatch. They are all unusual in their own way and no two are the same…
How much are bespoke bellows?
For choices in the usual range of woods, as well as leather and tacks – and either a black or bronze nozzle – the price is normally the same as similar Fireside Bellows (see Bellows for Sale). For more elaborate commissions, the price would be negotiated depending on the elements proposed. Completion of bespoke bellows depends on workflow at any given time – and, importantly, supplies of materials – so orders are requested to be made well in advance, particularly for a special event!
Wood choices include oak, elm, ash, sycamore or meranti for stained colour – leather choices are broader. I use bovine as well as sheep skins mostly, and there is a good colour range from various suppliers – restriction is often the thickness (thin enough to be soft, thick enough to be strong!). Ask about choices available now.
£50.00 is a non-refundable deposit. Final payment will not be required until the bellows are ready for shipment. Please note that if the bellows are not fully paid for and collected/delivered within 3 months of completion they will be made available for sale (with no claim by you).
