This listing is for a rather unusual frontisplate for an antique sewing machine by The Coventry Machinists Company - European Machine. It is made of a heavy black iron and has beautiful scrollwork design in black, gold and red (center of design). There is a piece on the back that appears to be what connected the piece to the actual sewing machine.

The piece measures 5" tall and 6" at the widest part on the bottom.

This would make an outstanding piece for an assemblage or any other type of art that you can envision or as a sewing room decor piece among many other possibilities!

A BIT OF HISTORY: The Coventry Machinists Company was a sewing machine and cycle company once based at Cheylesmore, England.

Beginning as the European Sewing Machine Company in 1861 in Coventry, by 1868 they changed their name to the Coventry Machinists when they took the decision to manufacture velocipedes of French design.

In 1897, the Company became the Swift Cycle Company and the following year they began making motorcycles as well as cycles. By 1902 they had developed single-cylinder motorcars and by 1905 a four-cylinder model, followed many others.

In 1915 they ceased the manufacture of motorcycles to concentrate on car production which lasted until 1931.
