Description

From the private collection of a retired pharmacist, a Victorian period hinged cast iron cork press with handle, in a leafy design with three different sized moulds. A pharmacist or chemist would wet a cork and press it to size within this mould to be inserted into different sized bottles of custom mixed medications. As the cork dried, it stoppered the bottles tightly and securely.
The press was meant to be secured to the table for use, through the four holes on the feet.
Size-9.75 inches long by 2.75 inches wide by 3.25 inches high at highest point.
Weight-1 kilo.
Still retaining the original finish, this interesting apothecary antique is in very good condition. It would be an asset to a collection, and an excellent talking point.
This item will ship from the USA.
