Fireplace Bellows History
Posted December 29, 2008on:
Some sources suggest that fireplace bellows history began with man around the campfire keeping it going by using bellows made from animal skin. As man moved into huts and on to cabins and such he heated them with fires and experimented with holes that became the fireplace flue. Fireplace bellows history definitely goes back into European history hundreds of years before they came to America. Old shipping and other records list them. Some of the fireplace bellows history includes old New England fireplace bellows with moon faces, dragons, or animals carved into the wood of the bellows.
