    I have never owned a vintage sewing machine before and don't know anything about them. It was given to me as a decoration for my sewing room. I didn't get anything else with it, just what's in the pictures. Please tell me anything you know!

    Wow. I don't know anything about this brand, but I am fascinated by the vintage machines. I would enjoy looking at it too.

    Does it have a serial number? That might tell you more about it. There were only a few companies making machines, but they labeled them for store and other companies.

    There is a number in the last picture, but I don't know if it's the serial number since that piece seems to come off the machine. The number on that is 1163055N.

    This was the machine that Sears and Roebuck sold back in the early 1900's. And it is a really nice example with the decals almost intact, I think Davis were badging the machines for them at the time.
