An attractive, late Victorian cast iron book press or printer's copying press, dating to around the 1890s. It is made of solid iron with two plates that are opened and closed with a screw on the top. This would have been a vital part of a 19th century printer's or bookbinder's workshop. It still functions perfectly but is also ideal as a decorative piece.
