L-Shaped downward facing handle which has a helical gear return spring mechanism.
Stamped branding on one side of the main body, with a backwards ‘R’ next to a ‘G’, then ‘No. 11157’. Please see photos.
Measuring approximately 21.5cm tall (at tallest point), and 17cm wide (at widest point).
Base shows holes where this piece would have probably been previously mounted to a workbench.
Piece in great condition, helical gear movement working lovely, although there is loose metal collar which moves up and down (should be fixed to the top edge). 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.
