Patty -

The section on Letter Copying Presses at:
http://www.officemuseum.com/copy_machines.htm
may help. From the photo, I'm guessing this was a version of a portable
copying press. While it probably won't be useful for your original ideas, it
might make a nice leaf or flower press. It's lovely.

with best wishes,
Roberta
