Looks like one used in a parlor for the parlor fireplace.  I'll try to remember to check the Sears Roebuck catalogs from 1897, 1905, 1908 when I get home tonight to see if they sold one like that.  I'll also check out kitchen stuff in my various books.

Probably work fine for a charcoal forge but may have issues with a coal or coke forge.

If the price was cheap I’d buy it and double up the gearing via jack shaft to get a bigger air blast. But at that price no no no thanks.
