Mysterious platenpress

Luckily I got my hands on this beauty. Unfortunally, I dont know its history… Do anyone know something about this press? Its located in Norway. I Found a Minerva Cato with the same disk system

and one unidentified press in Germany, that looks like a sister to it.

Hi Marit, These were made by lots of German builders. Most popular is Emile Kahle and Perfect. We have 3 or 4 of this type in our stock. If it’ is Kahle then there would have been a nameplate on front base (under platen) or on the ink duct cover. Nice press congratulations.

Check out the documentation section of our website, Drukwerk in de Marge. I presume you’re in Europe, more chance of finding your information there. And, as Nick said, most probably a German-built press.
