Sewing Machine Pedal Foot Treadle from the Weed Sewing Company. This company was established in the latter 1800s in Hartford, CT, when post Civil War manufacturing was taking hold in America. The company was sold in the early 1900s to a bicycle company. This foot treadle is cast iron and in excellent condition. Two feet with a criss cross diamond design and the company's shapely "W" in the heel. The WEED name in capital letters is at the top in an arched header connecting the two feet. The wave shaped piece off to the top right was the connection to the moving parts to run the sewing machine. It still has a pin, now bent some, in the very end. Some minor nicks in the iron from its age, and a beautiful primitive brown color on both sides. No splits, breaks, or repairs to this very old piece. Back side is shown in last photo.
A very interesting piece of the history of sewing machines .

Length is 14 1/2" from bottom of heal to the end of the waved connection.
Length of the actual "feet", heel to toe, is 11".
Width is 8 3/4" at the widest part, not including the connection piece on the top right.

"Weed", an unusual name, but that of Theodore Weed of Fairfield, CT who originally designed and owned the patent rights to his sewing machines.
