Oh my...do I have the world's best hubby or what? :D Saw this in a local used furniture store...I drooled and whimpered....he bargined and loaded it in that car!! Made sometime between 1878 and the late 1880's according to what I can find on Needlebar...
~happy lil sigh~ He gave up a planned fishing trip to the coast to bring this home!! Love that man to pieces!
With the cabinet, I think it's original...is stamped W&W
Close up of the machine...seems to work like a charm, altho I have to figure out loading the bobbin and threading her!
From what I understand, this kind of cabinet is called a "Coffin Lid"??
