Default Ever heard of an "Alice"?

Picked this up at a thrift store.
Parts have made in Italy markings, and seems to have the same mechanical apperance to a Necchi Lydia.

Here's a link to a necchi 'Lydia"....if you contact the seller they might have more info for you, they seem to know a lot about this machine.

Am I the only one who want to write White Rabbit lyrics? Go ask Alice. Pretty machine. Newer than my Necchis.

I have never seen such a sleek looking machine. Hope it sews well for you. I grew up using a Necchi and I loved it. It was pedal to the metal fast.

I did a little more image searching and think I nailed it: A Necchi 545

It did come with a manual, but it has no company information and even calls it a "Alice Super Zig Zag 2" on the cover, reminiscent of manuals that are hastily put together for import items.

It runs pretty good. I had to take the camstack apart because it was gummed up and wouldn't move. but otherwise feels like a nice machine.
