Bellows (Period)

Bellows (Period)

A bellows is a device that produces a stream of air when its handles are pumped; it’s used in blacksmiths’ fires, and in pipe organs.  It’s a period charge, found in the arms of von Beilentz or Bellentz, 1413 [Conz.Const. clxix].  The bellows has its spout to base by default.
