Antique Cast Iron Book Press Binding 1.jpg

Antique Cast Iron Bookbinding Press Table Top Press Circa 1900

A very fine antique book binding press. 
These small cast iron presses were used to secure the book pages for stitching the binding of the book. Now they make great additions to the antiquarian book collector. 
Some people use these for art projects such as relief and intaglio printing processes. 
I have not seen a makers name on the side or brackets of the press. 
The press does work but will need additional cleaning. 

Size: 17.5" wide x 12" deep x 17" tall
         plate size is 12.5" x 10"

Condition: Some wear to the black paint finish and areas have exposed metal. Working with no visible cracks on either plate. 
Please see the photos for more details. 

If you have any questions or need more images please feel free to contact me. 

NOTE:
Due the size and weight of this item, the press will need to be picked up at 21211 location or special transpiration. Please contact me before purchase to arrange pick up or special transportation, please provide me with your delivery address.
