    Could it be a machine 'badged' for Marshall Field stores? It's very interesting. Will be beautiful for someone willing to do all the cleanup/restoration.

    I think it is, but I can't find much information on it.

    It's built by National I think. You could look at pics on Needlebar or ISMACS to find one like it.

    If you are looking to buy it, make sure it has the shuttle and at least one bobbin.

    If that is a lamp tied on at the leaf tension area it looks like it would just give you shadow at the needle.

    This is an early National machine. Refered to as the VB-TT type 4 on Needlebar's site.
