    Standard Treadle with a Coffin Top

    I was given this lovely machine by my DDIL. It was her grandmother's and when she died, no one in the family wanted it. So she took it to give to me. Can someone help me date it, the # is 89097? I have part of the original booklet that came w/it. An absolutely pristine box of tools. Many extra bobbins.
    Thanks,
    Dolly

    Pretty! I don't know that there's any kind of list for the old Standards....if I was to GUESS, I'd say sometime between 1900-1915...
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    You have the Standard 'Slim'. There was also a Standard Stout. I don't have dating info, though.

    Boy, were you ever given a Treasure!! Very, very neat cover.... I have the head that belonged to my Mam Maw. I can remember when she made my 8th grade prom dress on it (yellow lace & taffeta). When she passed, my uncle got it & it stayed in his garage with dirt floor for yrs, so the cabinet deterated. Also have & am using the iron bases in my sewing room with a large top with ironing pad & cutting mat on it.
    Hint: to get rust off of base, haul it (preferably in bed of pick up) to a car wash.. The pressure will remove all & then just spray paint it black, like I did.

    Congrats on the Standard! Here is a link to the difference between the Standard Stout and Slim:

    To work these machines the wheel must rotate away from you, like a White machine. The spider attachment is for chain stitching. These machines produce a lovely straight stitch. Enjoy!
