    I have a Morse too. These are much rarer.

    It says made in Germany on the machine though everywhere I look on the net says they were made in PA. Yes it works.

    I have a machine that looks just like that. Do you have any info on it? I'm trying to find out how to thread it and some history of the machine. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Like the color. Just curious - Are you keeping it?
    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    THAT IS MY FIRST SEWING MACHINE!!!!! That is the first thing my DH bought me after we were married!!! I have never seen another one like it. I loved that machine!!! I used it till the insulation peeled off the wires. My granddaughter has it now. It still needs the wires fixed. I got it in 1956. $6 a month. I think the total price was $120.
