Something a little bit different at auction today. It’s important to clarify this is being sold on behalf of a customer. Upon the auction finishing you will be put in touch with the customer to finalise payment and shipping. The description is from the customer in their own words. All that I will add is that this is an incredibly light and portable press. The whole thing weighs around 6kg (which is about the weight of a roller of a Farley to put things in perspective, so this press is not one for heavy impression works) the auction ends Sunday evening. ————-
This press is from an unknown maker, made in England, I’ve only seen a few.
This press is simply constructed but has the huge added benefit of a gripper bar for close registration. It was my first press and allowed me to learn and develop registration techniques. It also has a wooden bed base to allow printing from linoleum or unmounted plates.
It’s easily to use and light and moveable making it an ideal press for teaching and demonstrations at fairs etc. An ideal first press for a small or ‘temporary’ studio (kitchen table!) or for someone looking to expand a collection.
Bed size 240mm x 330mm Press size 300mm x 510mm Weight approx 6kg
