    That is a beautiful machine. I had an old treadle that I planned to clean up for "show." That was years ago when I lived in Tennessee. I had to sell it when I moved back to Florida after my first husband passed away. Wish I had kept it.

    That is a nice machine especially in a Parlor cabinet!! It will be absolutely gorgeous once it is cleaned up.

    I'm not sure where you find info on your brand of machine, but you can trace the age and place of manufacture of old Singers by the serial numbers (The number you were asking about.)

    What a great find! The cabinet is beautiful. I've been looking for a working treadle at a reasonable price. I envy you!

    Glad you joined the club of old sewing machines. It gets to be an addiction.

    That's a very cool and unusual machine, a vibrating shuttle. Happy Valentine's Day!

    Thank you so so much for any and all help!! Also, do you know where I can get a belt for it and a cover for the front part of the shuttle? I have the piece for the back part, but the part that covers the serial number is missing.

    The number you are showing has to be the serial number. I know that Singer and Pfaff have a list of serial number series which signifies the year the machine was manufactured.

    If you look closely at the designs in the foot pedal, some of the designs of hearts (well almost!), as in The Hearts of Miss Valentina!

    The number that you show is the serial number and by going on line you should be able to find out what year it was manufactured.

    I just did a quick google and discover that your machine was made for Sears probably in the late 1910's or early 20's. It technically can be said that it is an early Kenmore as this machine was manufactured by Singer most likely and they put the Domestic name on it for Sears. Congrats it looks to be a real find.
