    Go to link I put below here. Domestic was a company that made machines for SEars in 1910-1924 although the company was in business before 1910. One of the machines they made for Sears was the Franklin. There is another girl on this group that has the Franklin that we have been chatting about this week as well. Domestic was bought out by the White Company in 1924. Click on Some Thoughts on the Domestic Company to get more history at link below.

    In the next link are different models of the Domestic found on webshots.
