ANTIQUE Printing PRESSES are all the rage with many dealers and collectors looking for these rare nostalgic industrial tools of the trade to recreate authentic printing press products.

Artists, scrap-bookers, multimedia arts, potters, are on the lookout for not only lead type face lettering  but the old press cabinet drawers - so the a twenty drawer cabinet with the typeface contents is an exciting find all on its own!

This rare old printing press find is a Chandler and Price Craftsman Old Style with the tell tale curves on the flywheel. Harrison T. Chandler, an Illinois banker, while negotiating to buy an interest in the Cleveland Type Foundry, met William H. Price, son of a builder of printing presses. They founded the Chandler & Price Co. of Cleveland to build printing equipment.
This CHANDLER & PRICE hand fed open platen jobbing press is marked:

"The CHANDLER & PRICE Co CLEVELAND, OHIO, USA"
and has a brass plate marked:

"SOLE AGENTS TORONTO TYPE FOUNDRY Co LIMITED TORONTO MONTREAL HALIFAX WINNIPEG"

- marked PAT APRIL 2 87 (1887) No 1060.



The PRESS CABINET  has 20 drawers full of original lead typeface and is a fabulous find all on its own! A great antique cabinet full of history!
