Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Can't wait to see the pink/red sewing machine!! I just love the different colors of the un-Singers.
Happy Anniversary, Charlee (and William)! A toy sewing machine would be my guess on the gift.

Better guess would be Frister and Rossmann though, on second thought.
Thanks Melinda! And no...not an F&R, altho I might have chosen that one before I knew that this one is harder to find here in the States! You're on the right track tho....it's German....
Another clue: It was made in Altenburg, East Germany.
Candace got it! It is a Köhler. Not quite as early as those, This one is from the 40's or early 50's and it does have some cosmetic issues. Here are the "before cleaning/before restoring" pics. William is rather mortified that I didn't at least dust it before pics...I told him that y'all have seen dust before!!
And yep! That treadle pedal is wood!!
