Godling Pearl Old Style No.3

Golding Pearl Old Style #3

How was your 4th of July weekend?! Good, I hope! Heartfish Press welcomed a new (old) press on Sunday! Meet the Golding Pearl Old Style No. 3 — made in 1902! Dan at the Arm Letterpress had been restoring it for me and finally she was ready to move into my studio.

The Pearl can be moved in pieces so that made the move a lot easier… but to lift the top part, 2-3 guys hands are required…

Everything is in the van and ready to go…

and when we came to my studio, Dan put them all back together (THANK YOU SO MUCH!) and there she is! Sitting right next to me right now :)

Ohhh that heart-shaped treadle… melts my heart every time — now, everyday! Can’t wait to print with her!

Again, thank you very much, Dan at the Arm, my friend Christian and my husband Randy for your time and hands, there was no way I could have done this by myself. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  1. Lovely!
    We moved mine in a mini van from CT back in December!
    Gotta find some strong arms soon to put her up on her stand.
    What did you name her?
