    I know these won't post in order so the blue machine is a Wizard made by brother...very heavy and has zig zag...looks like it was hardly used
    $10.00
    The small one is a old singer sometime in the late er 1800's not sure of the date $1.00


    the one with oll the ornate decoration is a 1924 singer treadle...with a Tiger Oak cabinet. All it needs is a new belt which is ordered and the drawers were full of acessories and buttons and needles my daughter bought this for $40.00 I get to have it as long as i want it...shes a sweetheart my daughter

    I am fairly sure that is the machine they call the FiddleHead machine. look at the base and it looks a little like a violin.........Good find...Does it have the bobbin case? remember, to clean these old painted machines, don't use any harse cleaners....it will take the paint right off....very mild soap,

    I looked for it on ebay and couldn't find it....the boobin and case in side looks fine. i\It's the ouside that has been allowed to rust. I put on a light film of oil to stop the rusting....it looks as if the machine was very ornate

    Go to Ebay, look under antique singer sewing machines, then scrool till you find it. 3 days left to the end. It is the 11th one down on the second page. His lister name is Wolfegang's Collectibes.
