Item:293577499107Antique Quality D Lion Brand Heavy Duty Book Press Stationery item. Due to the very heavy weight of the press, collection in person, or can deliver within a reasonable distance for an agreed fee. This item was found rusting away in an old shed, the original cast iron handle ( supplied to buyer if would like to repair.) Had snapped. As cast iron has a very high carbon make up it can be quite difficult but not impossible to weld, so i fashioned a new one from hard wood. The whole unit was seized up so i had a long job on my hands to release. With the new "rustic " handle, elbow grease and a few ( lots actually ) expletives i managed to get the beautiful piece working again. I can now turn the whole thing using just one finger...miracles do happen. Original printers & Stationers nameplate on the front is...COX & SHARLAND Stationers Southampton. They were around in the 19th century onwards. The whole 'machine' weighs 6.5 stone an measures 19" long x 10" wide x 15 " high fully open. I have superficially cleaned it to maintain the aesthetically appealing patina. A very nice, heavy, fully working item.
