This is a very non typical Dixon tool. The screw of the table clamp doesn’t have a hole in the grip. An internal closing cup, short shell tube, no cartridge pusher and black painted press handle. Only the press handle and the hand made pins of the table clamp make it believable that this is a Dixon tool.

There is a another Dixon closer with no 1204C. See UK DIXON BC 1204C-2. Same press handle no. 6 different shape.
