Hi! I was wondering if anyone could give me a bit more information about this sewing machine.
I'm guessing it's from somewhere in the late 1940s/early 1950s as it was my grandmother's when she was a girl. As can be seen in the photos, it works by turning a wheel. It looks like there should be a knob to turn the wheel but there isn't a knob with it. It's a little scratched up since it's been used by three generations but it doesn't seem to be in horrible condition. There's a small nick in the S in Singer, and it's a bit dusty on top. Under the little gold thing at the bottom that says Trade Mark and stuff, there are a few scratches on the metal, but overall it looks pretty presentable, and last time I checked it still works. I like it because it's got a fair bit of history behind it - I know who owned it before me and stuff - and I like the look of it on the bookshelf in my room. I was wondering if anyone knew a little more about it?
