Default Meet The Queen

I can blame my DD for this one. She sent me a link to a CL posting on this machine. The lister was taking a best offer. DD went to see the machine and offered $75 and the lister took it. He said his wife had purchased it to clean it up and restore it but never did. He just wanted to get rid of it.

Overall it the machine is in fair shape and of course the cabinet top needs some work. I am still trying to date the machine but there is not much information on the Internet regarding this one. I am going to estimate the date sometime in the late 1890s. The queen did come with the shuttle and bobbins. Hooray!

How exacting that you found this example. Caroline's definitely has the same fiddle base.

Thanks for the link Pinkcastle. I am starting a Word document for all the info that I can find on the Internet regarding the Queen. TIAS has a manual for the machine that I am going to purchase. Hooray. The Queen had a day at the spa yesterday. She has cleaned up so nicely. Will post some more pictures later today.
