Product Description for: Antique Cigar Press H. Watteyne Pearl St. NY Aug 2 1881

Antique Cigar press measures 23 x 12 x 9 is heavy – about 35 pounds and looks awesome! Overall aging but all looks to be okay – a few of the wooden presses have a chip here and there but still looks to be in good working order. The handle works as it should turning to press. Obviously needs to be cleaned and lubricated but all original. Appears to be cast iron I think.

Was watching it too, but probably too skinny a throat for modern molds, and went for an eyewatering price in the end anyways.

The pics have given me a solid plan for making a press out of a scaffold screw jack though, so thanks for posting. (y)
