Default Singer 1909, Mother of Pearl?

This machine is posted on Boise's Craigs List. From the one close up it looks like it has inlaid mother-of-pearl decals... is that possible? It is in a beautiful cabinet, too. $250. I haven't tried posting a link before, but will se if I can do it...

No MOP, just really nice decals. It's the same cabinet as my machine. It's quite pretty and in good shape, are you getting it?

Those decals would be lovely to see in person. They appear iridescent in the photos. How luxurious to have a cabinet like that! Do you have yours where you can enjoy seeing it often?

No, afraid I can't fit it in the budget. Or room! It does look like it is beautiful, and I wish someone would give it to me, ha!

I am holding out for my wish list of a Singer 301 either in good working order, or that I (of limited knowledge,) can put into good working order. I use my FW for my sewing and would like a back-up to it that I can maintain.

I used my grandmother's Singer 66 treadle last week to make the simple cover for my FW. It is quite a coordination challenge! So fun have used it, though, after cleaning/oiling/fixing it up. I am not sure how successful I would be piecing on a treadle!
