I do not have a picture yet. the number on it is A659727 It came with a motor and a case. I just think they are so cute. my DH made a base for it so I could put it on a shelf.

Thanks for the posting the picture because I did not know what a Wilcox and Gibbs machine looked like. And, now that I have seen one, I agree with you in that they are very cute.
