Kraushaar's Universal Duster antique Victorian piano bellows wooden gadget


Antique Victorian wooden piano cleaning device. It is a piston-driven bellows, rather like a balloon pump in design, but designed to blow dust out of crevices in furniture, pianos etc. Ornate floral design on the side,
with wording that is hard to read but as far as I can tell, it says:Aug Kraushaar's Universal Duster, Patent No. 20222, 20 Nov. 1891. Made in Germany.
Measures 23 inches when closed, 36 inches when extended. Weight 470g.
No international postage for this item except by prior arrangement. If your deliveryaddress is outside the U.K. please e mail us onbravergrace@virginmedia.com for a shipping quote before buying.
Condition:
Unusual antique item, very stiff (I think the internal wooden rod may be a little warped), and therefore now purely decorative rather than for practical piano-cleaning use! The design on the side is worn and faded - if you like your antiques to look "new and shiny", you would need to do some restoration here! There are some knocks and minor splits in the wood - especially at the nozzle and the corners of the square end by the handle, as shown.
Postage:
International shipping by prior arrangement only. This item is too large for airmail. If your delivery address is outside the UK, please contact me for a courier quote BEFORE buying.
