    Do you think those are the original legs?

    I attempted yesterday to send pics of 2 "vintage" sewing machines on my local Craigslist and could not copy them to send. But if interested they were $25 ea, which seems very inexpensive to me and looked very nice, not sure they work according to ad, but some of you are using them for decorations and at $25 could probably afford postage..go to craigslist, then to city, Temple/Belton/Killeen Tx, arts and crafts catergory and look 2-3 days back. Good luck if interested, very nice looking machines...

    It's for real. It won't be that price by the end of six days, darn it. AnnieRose, my tan 301A, would look good in it.

    Hi, first time poster here. I hate to rub it in, but I bought that table. I found this forum doing a search with those terms because now I'm looking for the matching stool (if one even exists). But if I do find one, they probably won't ship to Canada :P

    Just for those of you who were wondering, everything appears to be original, including the black Gillette razor blade that fell out of it and the Coats and Clarks thread label that was wedged in the drawer. The finish is unfortunately not very good, it's peeling up over several areas and will have to be redone, it would definitely damage any silk or similar fabric run across it. There are also a couple of cracks in the wood (I don't think they're structurally bad) that weren't apparent in the photos but it's still a very cool piece of furniture. I haven't put my machine in it yet as I'm considering my refinishing options. I usually hate to remove the original finish but I don't think I'll have a choice with this. It's going to be tricky with the metal trim and the hinge has also been stained to match the wood. May have to resort to the professionals. It's mainly the top horizontal pieces that need work, the vertical ones are OK. Perhaps there's a way to remove the top and just refinish that? I'll have to look closer when summer is here and I have the time.
