Newton School of Metal Workers bellows

Description

A set of copper and wood fireside bellows made by the Newton School of Metal Workers, circa 1900.

One side of the bellows has a repousse design of a robin on branches.  On the other side the bellows have carved decoration around the air in take. I am led to believe that the leather bellows have been replaced but this has been very well done.

The back of the bellows still have the remnants of a paper label for the Newton School of Metalworkers in Cambridgeshire. These bellows came along with other items from a relative of Albert Prime who was the tutor at the Newton School for many years.
