A Large Chromed Antique Bank or Library Book Press from France, 19th Century

Weight = 105 lbs

This stunning antique chromed book press is much larger than most antique presses that you can find today. The large presses such as this were used in banks or libraries and were used to bind large documents and books which required significant force. This model, with brass accents is from France and dates to the 19th Century. Originally, it was likely painted iron, but over the years the paint faded, and it was recently chromed to be used as a stunning modern accessory with history.

CONDITION: Good condition with minor marks, pitting, and wear to chrome (see photos)
