Default Vintage White Family Rotary machine

I have my mothers white sewing machine and I am trying to find out how old it is.
I understand Husqvarna bought out the white company years ago. I tried looking
up on the internet some info to no avail. Can anyone of you help me to determine
the age of the machine? The serial number is FR 194981. It is in excellent condition
and sews like a dream. The cabinet has a measuring tape that runs the length of the machine.
I will try and attach a pic. Thanks to anyone that can help.

According to this research:

Your machine is a 1908 model. She's absolutely BEAUTIFUL, love those decals!! And even more special that she's a family machine....please write down her history and tuck it in a drawer!!

Lovely machine! The decals look like they are blue and red, which is neat. The ones I've come across have only been kind of a green and gold. White did some very nice cabinets; the measuring tape in front is a nice detail.

Thank you for finding out the year of this model. I must do something with the cabinet as it is peeling in many places.

Gorgeous machine. A little polish on those silver plates & some sewing machine oil on her finish & she will "glow"
