We bought this ca. 1891 Singer sewing machine literally off the street in East Aurora NY about 20 years ago. Honestly, we bought it as a decorative piece, and rarely, if ever, remove the cover. In fact, it's that place in our home where all the junk sits: mail, keys, flyers, etc. But thanks to CW, I decided to look a little closer and discover exactly how old my old Singer machine is. I found out it's from 1891. I also have the Singer Puzzle Box, which often came with these machines, with many of the attachments. I'll add that in my next post.
This is the 5 drawer model, and although it's not as fancy and deluxe as some of the other machines of the day, it's just beautiful to me!
