    Scarab decals

    I didn't appreciate it until after I left the store but I am thinking that Scarab beetle decals are not common. If anyone is interested, this machine,a Singer, was in Bullhead City, AZ in an antique mall, no bobbin holder and no bobbin. Sorry, no picture and I can't tell you what model.

    I have never seen the sarab beetle decals on a Singer, but of course; the Sphinx and the Lotus decals are Egyptian inspiried. There is a Frankling with a fantastic decal set, shiny multitone scarab decals and wings, very much in the Egyptian line. I personally still notice interesting decal sets I haven't seen before; recently I came across a Dürkopp with a floral decor, whith an amorini figure here and there.

    I wish I had had a camera with me and we are travelling so I can't get back there. I had to look up amorini - thanks for expanding my knowledge.

    Sorry, I was side tracking a bit,maybe putti is more commonly used in the US. Pictures are good for documentation later on, but I'm not very good with it my self. I tried to search for rare Singer decal sets, but couldn't find any I didn't already know about. I like the early floral types too, some look close to hand paited.

    We will be back this way in 6 months, perhaps it will still be there and we can clear up the mystery.
