There's a handy dandy little book sold on ebay for $10 where I got this info from: "The Handbook of Antique Sewing Machines" by Charles Law. $10 well spent and I'm not the seller.

    Thanks Jon, according to ISMACS my Minnesota H was made by Standard, but there is also a Minnesota H made by Davis. Sometimes the manufacturers of these old machines can get a little confusing, especially when they used the same name for the machine!

    This one should clean up well but it's going to be a pain finding the front slide plate!

    Dan,

    I've got a twin to this machine - also missing the front slide plate. Do you think we could find two slide plates?

    You can make a plate out of clear plastic until you find a plate. Which reminds me that I have a machine that needs that done. This is the machine that needs the clear plastic plates on my machine, or I should say Cathy's since I'm the new steward until Cathy wishes it back.

    Hi Monica,

    The Empress is yours. I won't be taking it away from you. Besides I have two more that are identical, but with different brand names.

    Question for those folks that have painted their silvered decals. What type of paint did you used? I have this Eldredge which I now wish to restore the machine to its former beauty. The lady works thanks to Cathy giving me a tension spring, but the poor machine needs more restoration. She's vain and yearning for her makeup. I swear these machines talk.

    Thank you. I always think of it as yours, just stored on my shelf looking pretty.
