What a cute little child's sewing machine! She is called Little Betty (awwww!) and is enamelled in cheerful red. Little Betty is working and even comes with an old vintage cotton reel with original cotton. She is made completely from metal including the hand wheel (later models had plastic hand wheels).

Little Betty is over 60 years old and does have vintage wear and tear- mostly on the front of the base below the name where the enamel paint has chipped off and with a little rust showing (please see photo's).

This W2 model of the Little Betty machines was made by the Straco Toy Sewing Machine Company in Britain in 1948-1950 and was their most popular model. They came in a variety of colours with the most sought after being red, blue and green.

Would make a lovely gift for a collector or for decorative display.

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you for looking
