Default Recognize these sewing machine cabinet drawers?

Fell in love with these almost mission-style drawers that were supposedly from a sewing machine cabinet. My husband's building me a cabinet for my treadle (I only have a base). We thought we'd add these. (I may have to call the finished product Frankenstein.) I've never seen a cabinet with drawers like these. Have you?

I know several people who decorate with them.

I want to say they are from a New Home. Singer has a similar design on one of their cabinets.

They look like NEW HOME. Here's a CL with the original drawer pulls and in a lighter color, but they look like the drawers you've posted to me.

Thanks for the link to the new home cabinet. Nice to see what it looked like "in full".

I have a National VS badged as Alvah with those drawers. Of course, yours are upside down.

It was sold by Sears and Montgomery Wards. Sometimes a six drawer option is shown in the advertising.

I have my Grandmothers singer sewing machine (it has a patient date of ?1889....it has a number on the head but I have forgotten the date when it was made) it has iron peddle legs etc. with drawers very simular they have round corners. with metal pulls..the pulls on your drawers are probably not original ...my aunts had different machines that had drawers close to yours..they have been used very nicely in victorian decor.. have fun with them!

Why do you say that? Seriously. Wouldn't the side currently "up" in the photo be attached to the bottom of the treadle top?
