Customer Question
O"n the show 1...

O"n the show 1 or 2 weeks ago, the was an antique fireplace bellows. I would like to see that show clip.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It is wooden with leather flexible parts with fine markings over all of both sides of the bellows. There is a deeply carved coat of arms and the initials FLW carved also.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Copper like metal nozzle.
