    Need Help Identifying Antique Toy Machine

    I collect toy sewing machines, and this one is available for purchase. The seller is calling it a Casiege, but I don't see any writing on it other than a little 'medallion' which says 'Made in Germany E.P.' I don't see anything similar in my guide book. Anyone know anything about this machine? Or where I can find out more?

    Don't know much about the machine. I am guessing EP stand for Eastern Prussia, and that country does not exist anymore. So it's at least from before 1920.

    I found it! It's an Ernst Plank. My book had one but not in the red color. I found it on this page, it's the 2nd one down on the left side:

    And it's now also mine ;-)

    Congratulations on your new "toy"! Enjoy!
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    That is a really neat toy machine. It would be fun to own one.
