Welcome to the Quilting Board!
dont know anything about these either but nice find!
Looks like a Singer- even the bobbins look like them.
don'y know anything about it but nice machine
have you googled it and see what came up?
Here's the serial number: S2754461
Is it a full size machine or smaller. Your right it very good looking :D
Cele, your machine was made by the National Sewing Machine Co.
Ill see what I can find for dates..
They were sold mostly though department stores... like Montgomery Wards, Sears,, etc
It's a full size machine. I believe it is cast iron. Very heavy.
OK Chele, keep in mind that I am NOT the expert on this, but
it seems that your machine was made by the National Sewing Machine Co. in Ill, which closed their doors in 1953..
So I think that you can assume it is at least that old.. and it looks like the machines of that era.
I think probably somewhere between 1924 and 1953.. Not much on this company.. I know that I have one other book, but I cant locate it right this moment.. Ill keep looking..
Oh, thank you so much for researching for me! :D The machine is getting all kinds of looks and inquiries here at home. I was impressed my husband sat down and tried to figure out how everything works. He said he wants to redo all the electrical. It is kind of scary looking! None of the cords have insulation, or grounded plugs. I didn't get shocked when I plugged it in!
