Nipping press identification

Does anyone know the manufacturer of this nipping press? It looks like it had gold lettering on the top that said the maker, but they are unidentifiable at this point.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you

Benjd—— maybe posting a pic would help. It’s hard to determine manufacturer without something to go on…

Silly suggestion,! but who knows.
Without harm to Ones self, or the surface it sits on, or the M/c. itself, with care, roll it over 1/4 of a turn, take close inspection of the underside looking for identification marks, Makers OR Foundry of origin.
Occassionally the base(s) are covered with coloured Baize cloth, for work surface protection, unless it (the baize) needs replacing, it is fairly easy to do a fingertip test, i.e. like reading braille.! - Without disturbing the protection.

Rename your picture ‘press.jpg’ an upload. If too big the system will tell you and just make smaller until it uploads.

If when the plate is at its highest you can’t get a bound book underneath it is not a nipping press, it is a document copying press. The majority of presses offered on eBay as nipping presses are not nipping presses.
