Old cast iron press. "Columbia Meat/Juice Press. Landers, Frary & Clark. New Britain, Conn. USA". The press would have originally had a container to sit within it. The press shows wear and marks throughout as well as a few areas of light surface rust. I sort of like it just the way it is. It is very industrial looking and I would use it as a piece of interest on a shelf or as a bookend. It measures approx. 7" tall. Please pm me for additional pictures.
