    They state Golden machine...like what is a "Golden" machine. Is it a badged National?

    Guess some figure a sewing machine is only good for setting knick knacks and TV's on top of.
    I WISH / DREAM ebay and CL sellers would write the "obvious" serial numbers in their descriptions such as Davis, Singer, and others.

    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.

    You know, I've never been able to get the front open on my NVF. I had started to decide it wasn't a drawer, and was just a trim piece. Any one have a picture of that drawer open, so I can figure out where to tap? Laura

    I knew that machine had your name on it!
    Your true red one will find you one day - when you least expect it!

It is complete - bobbin winder and all - nothing missing nor broken. The only thing I can see that needs replacing is the bobbin winder tire. I won't have time for a few days to clean and oil the machine. I am busy right now on something else. I will post a picture in a couple days, when I have the time to really clean it, oil it and try sewing with it.

    I am thinking, though, it is fun to have a machine with some color! Something besides, black, white, or mocha!

    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!!
