An unusual (probably continental-European) precision plain-turning lathe with a large, built-in dividing head on the headstock. The massive V-way bed, heavily-built compound slide rest (but with a relatively short-travel top slide) and a coarse thread protruding from the lower front face of the headstock suggest that it may have been constructed as a special-purpose lathe - for the backing-off or relieving milling cutters or oil-grooving for example - rather than one for general work.
