    I haven't heard of it, either, but it sure is a pretty one!! I like the little box that it's in, also. Is it yours?

    I have not seen one before but it is a beautiful machine. I hpe someone is able to provide you with information as I would think many of us would be interested to know more about it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Whippet

    Very nice...appears to be about the same vintage of Whippet automobiles. Deco decals are wonderful on this great find! Companies sometimes experimented with their motors, especially if they were struggling to keep in business. Could there be a connection? Or, some whippet dog owners would probably die for it! I have a small hand vacuum made by Singer from the 30s, probably for picking up threads, etc....not lightweight!

    That's so pretty. I wonder if there's one that says Doberman. (My breed of choice.)
