    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 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?

    Did some more image-googling. Found this "New Williams" treadle and cabinet that has a very similar design, although no drawers. But the "cut" of the wood looks even more similar than the New Home posted/linked above.

    I could be wrong about yours but the fancy cuts on the side of mine face down. The flat part is screwed onto the top. Does yours have any screw holes?

    Remember, these are now yours and can be mounted any way you choose. If you'd like a pic as reference, just ask!

    On yours, the "bottom" has one rounded edge, while the "top" has two rounded edges. I also used a magnifying glass on the craigslist image and sure enough, the double rounded edges are on the bottom. The decorative edge on sides will not be seen if you put it at the top also.

    I have the sewing machine these drawers went to......

    Hi! I DO recognize these drawers. I have the very sewing machine that has these exact drawers in the cabinet. The sewing machine is by New Home and is from 1889. The original cabinet is very pretty and has a fancy wooden top that covers the sewing machine itself. My sewing machine was owned and used by my great-great grandmother and passed down. The cabinet is in great shape and the sewing machine is a treadle operated and still sews. I haven't been able to find a picture of it on the internet, but I'd be happy to send you a picture of mine if you like.
