Description:This is a set of mechanical bellows with a nozzle, drum and mahogany handle. It is just possible to read the maker's name - Clark - on the drum. Embossed on the drum are the Royal Arms flanked by 'No 2'. Air would be pumped out through the nozzle by turning the wooden handle, which in turn rotates the drum. The bellows are British and date from around 1800.
