Item Details

Very Large Victorian Letter Press by Shaw and Son Fetter Lane London

This one is a big one and sure to create a bit of attention. The letter press was made by Shaw and Son of Fetter Lane London one of the oldest established businesses of any description in the world, having been founded in 1750 and trading continuously since then!

The press is the classic black with gilt lines and curves following the shape of the piece and due to its size is very decorative whether for home or commercial use. Condition wise, we would assume it is missing its stamp bit but otherwise presented in good historic condition with no cracks to the casting. There are a few of these around however this one is a whopper compared to most, weighing quite a bit…

Dimensions – Overall: Height 40cm when arm at lowest x Width 47cm x Depth 15.5cm
