From Mary Obrien

Book press

The base plate is 30x25cm and has the lion underneath but says ‘Quality D’. It also has a gold lion emblem on the front so I don’t think it has had any restoration attempts, apart from me oiling the screw mechanism. I think it is in good condition, I can send photos. I used it successfully for linocut printing, but I find I can’t lift it anymore so intend to sell it and buy a small etching Press. I paid $375 for it in NSW, but would like $350 for it if you know of anyone interested in purchasing it. I live suburban Victoria now for pick up. I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks Mary O’Brien
