Sewing machine is numbered FR 2398124 w/ June 3, 1913 trademark, and features beautiful Art Nouveau decals, cast iron treadle, old leather belt, box of Griest attachments & accessories - see list below with 32-pg ‘Five Stitch Attachment Book 12 Directions’ manual explaining their use.
Mission cabinet is covered in dark oak veneer and features a built-in measuring ruler of different inlaid woods, a storage cubby in each leg; 6 drawers w/ locks (but no key), and the word “WHITE” embossed on the front of cabinet in large wooden letters.
This highly collectible beauty is about 100 years old and is in pretty great shape for its age: veneer on cabinet is 99% intact, with light wear and only a few small missing spots; lid has a small chunk broken from its underside edge and a gouge (from rubbing against top of machine?); decals on machine are somewhat worn, and it needs to be cleaned. It has not been tested as to workability, but everything appears present.
Accessories in black metal ‘Rotary’ box include:
~ 5-Stitch Ruffler
~ Edge Stitcher
~ Several Hemmers & Feet
~ Quilter Guide
~ Shirring Plate
~ Underbraider Plate (?)
Also comes with a Universal Darner in original Art Deco box with instructions.
