    I am hoping someone might have heard of a Marguerite Treadle and might be able to give me some information on the model (pictures attached) and the company (Household Machine Company) that made them.

    Nice machine. You might want to go on the Vintage Sewing Machines Shop thread on here and put up the picture and ask those experts if they recognize it. It was probably made by one of the major sewing machine companies and given a "brand" name for a store or other retailer.

    Thanks for the information. I did see that one website that mentions a Marguerite, it basically was just a blog of someone that found one but really no other info. The gentleman that has it is second generation sewing machine repair/sales and has been doing it himself since the late 40's if I remember correctly. He is a wealth of information but said he has never heard of a Marguerite before.

    The one patent date I could read looked like 1874. The decal is in amazing shape for being over 100 years old.

    I have a feeling this may be American sewing machine, I was also looking for the information. I saw this, maybe the closest I can get to what looks like the Marguerite here.... http://vintagesewingmachine.net/Pict...No7/index.html

    Hi Diamondrose,

    I just bought a Marguerite at a garage sale for $10...I completely restored it to working condition...I can't find any information on it either....She is a beauty all refinished and repainted....Will go in my wife's sewing room....

    hi. I belong to a VSM group and I saw a Marguerite for sale on ebay, so I looked it up and saw this site and your post on yahoo. I asked the group about it and they said the Marguerite was a short lived badge name by Household. yours is in much better shape than the one I saw on ebay. here is some history about Household. http://ismacs.net/household/home.html a few of the major brands back then made models with other names. they also said to get Household needles for it. Household was in operation from 1873 to 1884. I hope that helps.

    You might try over at the Vintage Sweatshop Forum - lots of very knowledgeable people there! It's older than any I have, so I can't help you myself. I'd like to have one, though, being that my name is Margaret!
