BRANDED "PRYDERI" AFTER THE MYTHOLOGICAL WELSH KING ON BOTH SIDES OF TENSION ADJUSTMENT ARM. Platen (flat place for book) is nice and large 13" x 13-1/2". Frame is 18-1/2" wide, 15-1/2" deep and 20-1/2 tall.
Wood dowel joint construction visible with decorative supports on frame uprights. Wonderful dark color wood stain with nice patina. I have had this for a long time when I planned on learning the bookbinding craft. I have numerous book presses collected over the past 40 years and have never seen another sewing frame like this. Truly an exceptional one-of-a-kind antique piece that is still functional.This would be a wonderful addition to the book binder, conservator or book collector. If someone is familiar with the origins of this piece it would be appreciated hearing from you. Item will be dusted and cleaned prior to wrapping!
