    Question Picture of "queen" treadle machine

    Hi everyone,

    I am hoping that one of you might be able to give me some information on my sewing machine. I purchased it along with 4 other vintage machines, but this is the only one I can't find any information on. It is a Queen treadle with a shuttle. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Aside from the shuttle the Shape is very reminiscent of my white... ( no help I know, but very interesting and pretty just the same )

    Hello Peanut - I have checked the Needlebar website. There are photos of machines with Queen in the same lettering as yours. The name Queen (or alternatively, Home Queen) was put on machines sold by Sears Roebuck in Chicago, but they used different manufacturers at different times. At one stage it was White, later on, after 1908, it was Davis...

    Good Morning All - Thank you for all the input. The throat plate states that it was Patent June 29th, 1897 and the serial number on it is 118712. I have seen pictures of similar machines but none that matches this machine exactly. I love mysteries, but this one is just driving me nuts!!

    what a pretty machine. I'd also like to know more about it. What are the other machines you got with this one? And how did you get 5 at one time??

    Illinois SMCo was issued a patent on that date. Might want to check the patent against the machine.

    My son was helping elderly couple to move as they had lost their home due to illness. They had a huge quantity of sewing machines in their garage that they wanted to get rid of. I chose the "Queen", a 1920's Montgomery Wards "Damascus in cabinet, a 1938 Singer 201 in cabinet, a 1919 Singer 66 Red Eye in a dome case and a 1928 Singer 99-13 in a domed case, I would of bought more, but that was all I could get in my car. I'm not planning on keeping them all, I was only interested in the Singer 99-13, but I knew they were needing money. The real shame is my son told me later that they took the rest of the machines to the dump.
