    Is this probably a clone? The cabinet is gorgeous and I haven't seen one like it before. Seller says make offer so not sure if he is taking all offers until a certain time or not.

    Any info is appreciated!!!

    Not a clone. It's a 30s or 40s machine made by the White company. They came badges as Kenmores, Dressmakers, and other names. They are a good machine but do have a few idiosyncrasies.
    The hand wheel turns away from you and it will or should or probably does use the old large diameter White - Kenmore bobbin.

    If the price is as cheep as it looks go get it.

    I had a White 77 that was very similar. I gifted it away. It wasn't one of my favorites. They don't FMQ worth beans because you have to rig some kind of darning foot attachment etc. But, they are interesting.
