Press, Trouser

A flat, rectangular Calgary trouser press and stretcher with a wooden body and metal fixtures. Four screws can be adjusted to allow trousers to be placed in between the two halves of the press. The top side consists of two long narrow pieces of wood joined by two metal bars - ends of which are shaped to fit into screws. The bottom half consists of two pieces of wood joined with metal fittings and screw nuts. In between the two halves are three pieces of cardboard. Two are blank but one bears the instructions for use.
