VINTAGE SEWING MACHINE
The beauty: This is a great find-this vintage metal White brand sewing machine is a wonderful
turquoise and mint green colour, and would look great as retro decor-or you can try your hand at using it! The motor works, not sure about all the parts, but the motor does turn on when it is plugged in and it has the original cords and metal pedal.
It comes with the original base and cover.
The plaque on the side reads: White Sewing Machine corp. Cleveland-Ohio, Toronto-Canada. Made in Japan
the imperfect: this machine has some rust spots.
dimensions: length: 15 x height 11.5 x width 7

Thomas Howard White started producing chain stitch machines in 1858 in Templeton, Massachusetts. In 1866 he established a factory at Canal Street, Cleveland, Ohio and was trading as the White Manufacturing Company making New England type machines. The firm was incorporated as the White Sewing Machine Co. in 1876, expansion followed with the Company diversifying and moving to new premises.
In 1880 the Company had its Principal European Office at 19 Queen Victoria Street, London, by 1891 this had moved to 48 Holborn Viaduct but by 1901 it had been reduced to an Agency operated by Bishop's Cluster Co. Ltd located at 14 Golden Lane, London.
In 1916 White bought the Raymond Manufacturing Company based in Canada and in 1924 acquired the Domestic Sewing Machine Company.
The White Sewing Machine Co. is one of the few early sewing machine Companies to have survived to the present time.
