    What is this 1850 machine?

    I saw this on Craigslist. It says it is from 1850.

    DANG!! I'd be on that like white on rice!!

    It's a Florence...and probably more for display than for actual use, but it's in great shape!! They sew from left to right instead of front to back...

    ~whimper~

    Is that a 'fancy leg' Florence, Charleen?

    Yessum...and in my opinion, worth every penny (or more) of what they're asking.

    That's just too cute and would make such a great conversation piece.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I don't know what it is, but I'd buy it because the little feet are so cute!

    Thanks all! You gals are the experts
    I would buy it if I am in Atlanta! Too bad I'm not
    I wonder if it runs, that's provided someone knows how to thread it!

    Very pretty legs with the feet for pedals. Very different from anything I've seen.
