LETTERPRESS PRINTING PRESS 1800's RARE BALTIMORE NO. 11 card small Antique vtg
11 platen, letterpress printing press. Made by the Baumgarten Company in the late 1800’s. Baumgarten borrowed heavily from the Baltimorean line of presses produced by J. Dorman, also of Baltimore. These small presses were used to print small items like business cards, this would appeal to the professional printer who wished to reserve his bigger presses for larger projects. This old Press displays well, the original black paint is worn at places but still attractive, the wonderful gold highlights and decorative painting is still mostly present please see and enlarge my photos. The press functions in that it closes when you push the lever and the round tray turns slightly when you release the lever. The bad: this is missing the rollers and the stand is broken at the base. (See my last photo of the crack/break) The break isn’t overly obvious at first, unless you know it is there. This would make a wonderful shelf piece, but it could not be used without the rollers. I also do not have the printer’s type. With the handle down this press measures 15, 1/2 inches long by 8, 1/2 inches tall & 5, 1/2 inches wide. This weighs just under 10 lbs. Your item will be packaged securely, mummified in bubble wrap and buried snugly in new packaging peanuts. A previous owner has printed out the 24 page manual/catalog for this family of small presses. Also a page from the Oyster Bay Historical Society, apparently they have one of these presses in their museum. You get that print out as well.
