Classic Oak Bellows @ Brightwell-cum-Sotwell
Can be found hanging on the fireplace at the delightful 16th century half timbered, thatched inn located in the heart of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell (OX10 0RT) – one of Oxfordshire’s most beautiful villages https://www.redlionbcs.co.uk/ Yes, they are for sale from the innkeepers.
Classic! Why? The oak has come up really nicely and displays the classic qualities of that wonderful English hardwood. Old English Alga leather has an aged, comfortable look about it that complements the oak, and the bronze nozzle and tacks. Like all the bellows, built to last and be appreciated as a useful tool as well as an attractive fireside accessory…
Each bellows is crafted from locally sourced timber that is inspected and selected for its grain, knots or characteristics that make the finished product unique. Some time goes into sanding and shaping – particularly to make sure that the handles are smooth, comfortable and provide the perfect feel from the very first time you pick them up.
The leather is supple but strong to give your bellows great ‘lungs’, as well as providing the covering over a double hinge to ensure the strength of the bellows for years to come. The nozzle, designed by Anne and engineered locally, is made to focus the flow of air just where you need it.
The bellows are balanced and comfortable to hold as well as being very practical and useful.
