    Born May 22, 1923 in Elizabeth NJ. Works beautifully...I just need to get the hang of it....Looks gorgeous!! The decals/painting is almost perfect. Found this on craigslist... The man selling it gave me and my hubby lessons, showing us what we needed to do to keep it operating smoothly for many more years to come.
    A beautiful addition to "my sewing space" :

    Now to find time to learn the rhythm of the treadle and not go backwards....not as easy as it seems..

    That's a beauty! I have my DMIL's treadle in storage that I need to clean up, but it is a lot more worn than that one. Yours is near perfect!! Enjoy!

    Beautiful decals and very good condition. Is the plate on the right side copper? That makes it special.
