Large Early Foundry Bellows, Found Art Object


This striking object dates from the turn of the century with details like berry dyed stain, aged leather and hand wrought hardware. This piece has a nice way of transcending its intended use and becoming a very graphic mask like sculptural object that demands attention. Measures: 57" x 32". Come with a custom iron stand.
