I recently acquired a ‘Quail-Cuckoo’ clock, circa 1900-1910. The works are all fine except for one of the bellows in which the paper is fragile & tearing. In prepping to replace the bellows I discovered that the top of the bellows are not rectangular, but trapezoidal in shape. I’ve never seen trapezoidal bellows and doubt I can find modern replacements. Should I avoid replacing them in order to maintain the clock’s authenticity?
