    Standard Treadle with a Coffin Top

    I was given this lovely machine by my DDIL. It was her grandmother's and when she died, no one in the family wanted it. So she took it to give to me. Can someone help me date it, the # is 89097? I have part of the original booklet that came w/it. An absolutely pristine box of tools. Many extra bobbins.
    Thanks,
    Dolly

    Pretty! I don't know that there's any kind of list for the old Standards....if I was to GUESS, I'd say sometime between 1900-1915...
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    You have the Standard 'Slim'. There was also a Standard Stout. I don't have dating info, though.

    Boy, were you ever given a Treasure!! Very, very neat cover.... I have the head that belonged to my Mam Maw. I can remember when she made my 8th grade prom dress on it (yellow lace & taffeta). When she passed, my uncle got it & it stayed in his garage with dirt floor for yrs, so the cabinet deterated. Also have & am using the iron bases in my sewing room with a large top with ironing pad & cutting mat on it.
    Hint: to get rust off of base, haul it (preferably in bed of pick up) to a car wash.. The pressure will remove all & then just spray paint it black, like I did.

    Congrats on the Standard! Here is a link to the difference between the Standard Stout and Slim:

    To work these machines the wheel must rotate away from you, like a White machine. The spider attachment is for chain stitching. These machines produce a lovely straight stitch. Enjoy!

    Thanks for that! After viewing the photos, it seems that I also have a Standard "slim". It does take some getting used to when it comes to sewing, because the handwheel goes backward instead of forward like my Singers. I have been unable to date mine, although the latest patent date on the bobbin cover is 1887, with SN=147788. I think it is safe to say that this machine is likely pre-1900. I have the original manual; it is disintegrating, so I scanned it. If anyone would like a copy, pm me and I will send the pdf.

    Great machine and so glad it is in a home where it will be loved and cared for. I just got a white Rotary and last date on it for patent is Sept 10, 1905 and there is one starting in 1890 and 6 total so I am thinking 1905-1908 or so. Still waiting for something back on date, as when I called I finally gave up on the hold after 30 minutes. Did you get tools with it? Also have my grandmothers Singer bought in early 1950's so with two newer sewing machines and two surgers I am at my limit (space very limited). Enjoy and let us know if you find out more. Carol

    On Tuesday, I bought a Franklin VS treadle (Scarab version) in a parlor cabinet for $100. I posted about it at the same time I posted about the Standard. Take a look at it. I have my mother's 1940 Featherweight 221, a 1974 Viking 5230, a Viking 1+ embroidery machine, and a 15" Bailey on a Next Generation frame. I got an almost pristine set of tools, about 6 original bobbins and a partial booklet.
