    Looks as if it's a 15 clone. It's either in very great condition or is a total make-over. I'm guessing the latter. It is beautiful, but, not $3000 beautiful, and not even $300 beautiful. However, drop two zeros and I'm interested.

    it reminds me of the Singer "re-makes" or whatever they were called that were made in Taiwan, China and India (under Singer license) in the 70's (?). Some of those were sold as treadles I believe. Could explain the absense of any kind of locomotion mechanism.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    He is very HIGH. At least $2,500 High! Steve, if you contact the seller you might want to point out that it is a Mercedes Sewing Machine and not the Mercedes car.

    Um, they used a Post-it for a slide plate? The top is ripped off, no spool pin, and the text is all but completely wrong.
    "Heavy Duty Industrial Quality Machine" it is not. And the cabinet was not made out of Maple, but Mahogany. And NO! it is NOT in working order.

    Interesting that the seller put it in the "Art Collectables" category. . .

    That's largely because of a lack of options. Collectables because it's a vintage machine. It's where I sometimes put the 301s and stuff too. The other option is hobbies and crafts. I've seen some people put it in Home appliances, but I wouldn't think to look there. It's relatively irrelevant though, most people just search for "sewing machine" in All ads.

    The other one I liked was the "It must be at least 30 years old"
    Posted like a 20yo wrote it.

    I sent them a response asking why they were falsely advertising it as a "red-eye" when it was a "filigree" pattern.. and included a link to the ISMACS "Ornamentation" site

    Everybody should go check the ad again. I sent them the listing to the ISMACS site (ornamentation sets) and they corrected it

    Do you think that would be improved by the seller's suggestion?? -

    "
    Looks really good with an electric machine on top, combining new with old."
