I really wanted to show this off! It's a 1930's / 40's flower press. I've been looking around for one for a while. I especially wanted one that was small enough to carry with me when we go walking. I will use the pressed flowers and leaves in my Art-ccordion Books This press unfastens quickly with no loose parts, very handy. I love the chinese style art work on the cover. And all for the princely sum of £4!
