Note the reflections in the photo above. Those vertical lines on the cabinet are the reflection of the legs of the stool to the right. Although a few parts whose paint had worn off have been repainted, the cabinet has not been repainted, but was instead simply cleaned, waxed and buffed to a mirror-like shine...

The press is registered with Paul Moxon's Vandercook Census.
This press also comes with an original Vandercook cloth cover. Although stained, it is complete and usable and was recently dry-cleaned. We also found, btw, that a lawnmower/snowblower yard cover fits this press perfectly and is currently protecting the press in the shop.
