This has been in my Opa’s house for as long as I can remember. It’s always sat in the corner by the fireplace, so I always assumed it was a bellows. As we were cleaning out his house, we had a pile in the middle of the family room that was the “up for grabs” unclaimed pile. Believe it or not, this was in that pile. Although I love all things old and appreciated it, I don’t have a fireplace and I didn’t want to take it home to sit in my basement.
But then, my uncle started playing around with it and he told me what it was. Well, it was too cool to stay in the middle of the room, so I moved it to my pile.
Does anyone have any idea what it is?
It’s about 3 1/2′ long, so it’s pretty big.
Maybe I’ll send a prize to the person who gets it right first!
