    I am thinking that what you have is a German made Singer 15-91. If I am wrong I am sure that someone will correct me. If you need a manual you can download one here http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...g-machine.html. Are you located in Europe or the US? The machine motor may need to be converted if it not already.

Size:  366.3 KBThis is the dial machine. Interestingly enough it does not have a serial number on the front or anywhere on top... and it doesn't look like one has been removed either. The only number I found on it was on the bottom, as pictured. Weirdly the Italian is like this as well.

    I am in Fort Worth, until January 1st and then I get to escape back to the North. I was thinking that but the German treadle is a 15... and they look a little similar but do you know why the Cooper front. I got all of these out of an old museum... these are the keepers the rest have found good homes. I am going to the man's sisters house at the end of the month and she says she has paperwork on a lot of them but well I was curious now.

    The "dial" machine is a 101. I have one and love it.

    I have no idea why the copper face plate. One can only assume that they used what was available, perhaps chrome was too expensive.

    I haven't used any of these yet. I already had a 201 .... which is the joy of my life and a 99kName:  ee961164.jpg

Size:  367.9 KB. I wasn't planning on getting any of these. I found out that they were being let go and that a Treadle I have been looking for forever might be there. My sewing machine guy was suppose to get them all but when we got there he told me I could just have my treadle for free or I could have the lot for 400.00. Needless to say I took the lot and got my treadle... The picture is the treadle I went for 1886 Fiddle base vibrating shuttle. She is the love of my life now and the reason I have not tried the rest. So how does the 101 compare to the rest. Is it more like the 201 or the 66 and 99.

    The New Cottage is likely a New Home "badged" sewing machine. Very pretty.

    The 101 is like the 201 and 66 with the drop in bobbin. I have a 201 but my DD has it and won't give it up. The 101 is a superb sewing machine.
