£299.00

ANTIQUE METAL ENGINEER’S FLY PRESS / PUNCH SPRING STAMP, WOODEN HANDLE

  • Stunning antique engineers fly press / punch with original wooden handle.
  • Heavy metal body, assumedly brass and iron. I believe there is also a copper fixing on the end of the wooden handle (as verdigris can be seen).
  • Large heavy metal ball balanced handle, which presses spring mounted punch when pressed down.
  • No visible embossed markings or brand names, but still some remnants of the original black paint with gilt detailing can be seen on the main metal body.
  • Measuring approximately 37cm tall (from base to top of handle), and 16cm deep (back to front across base plate).
  • Base shows holes where this piece would have probably been previously mounted to a workbench.
  • Piece in good condition, spring movement working lovely. There is a loose metal collar which has split and moves away from the base of the wooden handle (should be fixed to edge of handle). Beautiful patina to metal – PLEASE SEE PHOTOS FOR CONDITION.
  • A lovely collectable antique fly press, which would look beautiful in any home or on display.
