Solid wood…some sort of press. Initially, I thought I was buying a flower press, but when I got home I found out that this is a flower press. And from what I can tell, after looking, while they are very different in appearance, most flower presses accommodate several layers and so include a clamping system of some sort.
It is made out of hardwood and is definitely crafted by a carpenter. It is heavy and intended to press something…but what? I’m impressed by the design and the construction of this item!
Help would be appreciated. And yes…there is a bag full of items sitting in the back of my car waiting to be dropped at the Women In Need shop. For every curiosity that comes into my house, there’s a rule that three objects have to leave.
