Old Wooden Colonial Book Press

This is a real beauty and in good condition for a wooden item that must date to pre 1900 I'd think. It is large and heavy weighing 3.5lbs and measuring 24" in length and 10" in width. I'm told that it is of American origin although can see no makers marks at all.Obviously it used to have a bolt going through it to fix it to a bench but this is no longer with the piece.
