Default trying to ID this cutie

overview.jpg

Hi all, I'm hoping to pick your brains, to identify this wee machine.

Of late I've been volunteering at a small community museum, giving their wee collection of VSMs a bit of spit and polish. So far they've all been Singers. DH and I disagree on whether this one is a Singer or not - he thinks it is, I'm not so sure .

It has no oval Singer badge, there are no Simanco numbers on the parts, no obvious serial number, and no 'Singer' on the decals, although there is the faint impression of one letter there, but it's so faint the DH and I also disagree on what letter it is .

The only number I can find anywhere is etched into the chrome of the near-side shuttle cover, the number being 3311393.

I'll put some more pics into the comments. fingers crossed someone recognises what this is .

Thank you in advance.

A couple more pics, including one alongside my Featherweight, to show scale. (I do have the shuttle and a couple of bobbins .)

So according to ISMACS this little girl is from 1882.

136 years young. Hope I look as good when I get to that age

Glenn got it. I don't think she's quite that old. Closer to 1912. Still looks spry for over 100.

Yep you're right, I must have looked up a six-digit number instead of a 7-digit number. Makes quite a difference...
And now that's two websites I didn't know existed that you've introduced me to. Thank you .
