This lovely little handcrank spent the last 20 years on display in a lovely home, filled with antiques.
Here is the hardware that held the dust cover on one side,
and the other. The colors of the top and the base are different- I wonder if perhaps this cover was switched out? But no matter, I’m happy to have it.
Here is the front view. I’m having trouble deciding which set of decals this is. There is no color other than gold.
But, everything is loose, needed a few drops of oil here and there and it sews a wonderful seam.
Here is the back. The access cover is molded to fit the pillar of the machine, and has decals as well.
And here is the serial number 11236415, which if I am reading the Singer dating charts correctly, makes this a machine made in the 1890’s. Well, display time is over for this old girl- she is going to be headed back to work!
