HELP WANTED: Machine Identification


I am researching on printing machines that belong to an old company. I was told that the company bought a majority of their letterpress machines from China and Hong Kong. And it seems like these machines were actually an imitation of the originals. Could someone possibly tell me what would be the closest original model of this machine?

Thanks a lot!

Although I can’t find an exact match for this, the mechanism of this press seems quite like the British Wharfedale in its general format. I would think it could well be patterned after the Wharfedale design. The Wharfedale was produced by the Dawson company in Otley.
