    Need help ID'ing a machine

    One of the five (!!) machines we picked up today is a transverse shuttle with mother-of-pearl inlay and (to my eye) ivy decals. I'd like to figure out the maker at least but I haven't seen any thing to give me a clue but the badge - a reversed R back-to-back with a regular R.

    That is lovely. Not a clue about the maker. Try looking through photos on ISMACS.com?

    Love all your beautiful machines. More pics would be appreciated of them. Love the old black beauties. Classic machines.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    I'll try to do more pics of today's haul, including the tops, tomorrow when we (hopefully) have some sun.

    The seller just informed me that it's a Seidel & Naumann - never heard of them before. I'm guessing the RR thing is just a rebadge.

    The Frister & Rossmann has an agent's label that says:
    Joseph Johnson & Comp[an]y, Ltd
    Agents
    Market Street
    Leicester

    The case for it is shown in the background (with the key still attached via a string.)

    The Seidel Naumann (?) has no verbiage that I can find. The case for it is also shown in the background.

    The Singer 13 is in really nice condition. It includes a very rag-tag manual:
    Directions for using the Singer Manufacturing Company's 'Medium' sewing machine.

    The manual looks like it was done for Great Britain. The parts box that came with it furthers the idea that this machine was for Great Britain:

    The Singer Manufacturing Company
    Chief Office in Europe 39 Foster Lane, Cheapside, London
    This box contains
    One Tuck Marker, One Quarter , One set Hemmers and Folder

    Though it looks like it actually has more than that in it.

    Wow! Pretty machines! The ivy design is neat, and it is a hand-crank too. What fun to play with!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
