I purchased this item of kitchenalia at a vide grenier last weekend. To be honest I just picked it up because I thought it looked interesting and it happened to be alongside the vintage cherry stoner I was about to buy. I iniitally thought it was a burger press but on closer examination I don’t think it is because the screw runs through the middle. It is clearly a press of some kind (see the images) and I’m wondering if it is a cheese press… can anyone shed any light on this item. The only marking on it is AA or AS stamped on the handle (sorry impossible to say which it is).
it has a ring former and the image below shows the plates and screw mechanism. Over to you experts out there!
