What's this?

I was going to say it was for developing Bromide's.

If there's a bath and rollers under the cover I think it could be either.

I did think if there was a heating element under there, it could be one of those things used with that expanding ink stuff similar to Espand-tex.

larger pics if possible :)

Also what are in the tins/on tin labels....

Will say my first thoughts were some sort of thermal transfer type thing....

Thanks for the replies, there isn't a logo on it. It has a heating element under the flap, I'll get some more pics.
If there's a heating element and a kind of mesh conveyor, It may be for the expanding ink thing.
There was a process (prob's still is) where the wet ink would be coated with a powder and then put through a heater.
This made the powder melt and expand to give a raised, glossy affect.
Usually used on business cards.

Either that or a Pie Warmer. ;)
...or both?
