Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any additional questions. This item is for pick-up only. Has been painted once with gray paint, end panels were never painted. This was painted prior to my ownership. This imposing stone came out of an old West Hartford, CT letterpress shop that closed in early 2000’s. The shop had been in business for over 100 years. Has plenty of shop wear and tear from use and still has plenty left. A really useful piece of equipment for your shop. Surface of stone has some small divots but not anything that will interfere with planning your type.
One drawer on furniture side of cabinet has piece of wood missing and also needs bottom of drawer replaced same drawer. Not a big deal. Very solid imposing frame.
$750.00 or best offer.
