Default 1860s Nettleton Raymond

So excited!! I picked this up at an estate sale. Drove 1 1/2 hrs to get there. Pre-Civil War, New England style, circa 1860, hand painted, hand crank sewing machine. $125. Oldest machine that I own. Isn't it cute?

Wow! It just blows my mind how someone in the 1800's could figure out how to make a sewing machine without technology. That handwheel is quite a piece of equipment! And they even added an amazing artistic statement! Very cool!

She is a beauty. You are so lucky to have found one at that price. I've been looking but haven't seen anything anywhere around this area. I'd love to have one. Does she work?

Yes. Smooth as silk.
