Can anyone tell me about the Standard Sewing machines? I understand the company was taken over by the Singer company in the early 1900's. I recently saw a Standard machine on ebay which had quite elaborate decals including a lion sitting rampant which I have seen on an old Singer. Did Sin ger continue making, and badge-ing machines as Standard machines after they took over the company and used their Singer decals for a while on the Standard machines? I tried googling Standard Company sewing machine decals and couldn't find the same lion anywhere. Also, this particular machine was stamped "Standard Manufacturing Co. Inc" whereas the Standard machines I've seen on the net are stamped "Standard manufacturing Co."
