This antique French Cast iron duck press is used to create the dish “Canard a la Presse” or pressed duck which was prepared at the table. It is a dish which originated in Rouen in the 19th century. It allows you to crush the duck carcass to extract the juice and the blood. As you turn the cast iron handle, the metal plunger moves down and crushes the carcass and the various cuts of meat. The blood then flows out via the blue enamel spout. The blood will then be used to combine the sauce with port, butter and lemon, prior to serving over thin slices of duck. It is stamped stamped "C.F." along with an anchor logo. C.F. stands for Camion Freres, founded in 1820 Can also be used for pressing lobster or other types of meat

SIZE approx: 37cm high wound up x 31cm high wound down to bowl x 18.5cm wide x 15cm deep - 4.7kg
