To many people, fireplace bellows and fireplaces conjure up images of Colonial houses of a bygone era. These large, poorly-insulated homes were heated by flame. It's easy to imagine George Washington or Benjamin Franklin reaching for their favorite pair of fireplace bellows to revive a reluctant fire.
We wanted to create a fireplace bellows that would have fit well in those times. Our Eagle Fireplace Bellows are made of solid maple. The eagle and banner design was a popular emblem of the early 19th century and is hand drawn with a woodburning pen.
Take yourself back to an earlier time. Colonial-style house not required for purchase.

Historical note: The phrase "live free or die" is the state motto of New Hampshire and is most often associated with General John Stark, a famous soldier of the American Revolutionary War. The phrase was also popular during the French Revolution. ("vivre libre ou mouri")
