    Recognize these treadle legs?

    Hubby and I just picked up a pair of legs that we thought looked cool. I have a few machines that need cabinets, he want's to build cabinets - but we need legs, so we thought this pair would fit the bill.

    Never saw these before, and a search for "20th Century" combined with sewing machine and/or treadle brought up thousands of images ... but none matched.

    Just wondering who they were ... if anyone has seen these before. The lettering looks art deco which gives me some idea of the period. I'll probably drop my 66 red eye in this one.

    One more thing ... close inspection disclosed the wheel is on a ball bearing joint.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Hi Sue,

    Can't say these irons are familiar to me either. According to Ismac's needle list, 20th Century was made by Mason. Mason did not make there own machines and were supplied mainly by White and eventually became a part of White.
    There used to be an excellent White site on Webshots describing the relationship between White and Mason but it is gone with the reworking of Webshots to Smile.

    Thanks Jon!! My husband told me had searched ISMACS's (while I was searching other places), he must have missed it.
