Seller: plupartfrancais (122) 100%, Location: Nottingham, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 313055036439 ANTIQUE FRENCH CAST IRON BOOK PRESS, PRINTING PRESS, BINDING PRESS, FLOWER PRESS, NIPPING PRESS, HEAVY 60 kg Acquired from a dealer in the Champagne region we are reliably informed this is from the 1800s. In antique vintage working condition with rusting, staining, peeling paint, and knocks - see photographs. This really is an imposing piece with remains of several coats of paint evident giving a nice patina. It’s obviously a quality piece judging by the heavy antique brass knob handles, collar fitting, and nuts. We have cleaned and oiled it but that’s about it. It would polish up well if waxed, or even paint up nicely if to your taste. It looks like it’s been a few colours in it’s lifetime, mainly green with the brass handles painted black and red. The paint is now worn in an attractive way. It opens and closes as it should but could possibly do with more oiling or greasing. There is some rusting and wear but no cracks. I can find no makers marks. Measures approximately: 52 cm tall when open, 43 cm when closed, base size 41 cm x 23 cm, plate size 31 cm x 23 cm and opens to 9 cm, the handle width is a little wider than the base. Weighs about 60 kg - so collection only It’s a really attractive decorative item but is in a good useable condition for its original purpose - book binding, printing, flower press etc. It also works well as a garden feature, or would be ideal as a retail display or prop.
