SINGER TREADLE SEWING MACHINE
ENCLOSED OAK PARLOUR CABINET
Elisabeth, New Jersey
(Accessories not included)
We have for sale a Singer Treadle sewing machine fully enclosed in an oak parlour cabinet. The lid to the cabinet opens up and the sewing machine (serial number B406321) lifts up by counterweights to the working surface. The serial number tells us that it is a Model 15 and was manufactured at Elisabeth, New Jersey on June 6 1904.
The carved oak cabinet has 5 drawers to the left). The bottom doors open to reveal the treadle and the top drawers close inwards, after the machine has lifted up, for knee space. The slim door to the front right opens up to reveal the treadle wheel - access is also available to the wheel from the end of the cabinet and there are doors at the rear of the cabinet that open also.
The cabinet makes a fantastic period piece of furniture. It has a rich patina, with expected scuffs and scrapes consistent with age and use. There is some veneer damage and marks to the hinged top as seen in the photos.
When the cabinet is open the spring release button is pushed and with slight manual assistance to start the counterweight, the machine lifts up and locks in place.
The sewing machine has a belt and the treadle winds the wheel and the needle rises and lowers as it should. The foot lifts and lowers and the needle and bobbin plates are in place along with the bobbin case. We cannot see any reason why the machine would not sew, however it has not been tested so you are buying as is.
The decals are bright in some places and well worn in others, as seen in the photos.
All photos are a significant part of the item description. Take your time to view them all carefully.
