    This machine is a model 15K, one of 210,000 identical machines commissioned at the Kilbowie factory near Glasgow in Scotland, in the first half of 1914. The decals look quite worn. The treadle table top looks to be a replacement. This model is plentiful and wouldn't be highly collectible in the current condition.

    Thanks Bernadette. Can you please suggest me which is the right top so I can try to find it and give it a original look? Thank you very much.

    Singer sold treadle machines with buyer options on cabinet style and different timber options, which were different prices, but for that time period, I would expect the cabinet to be the type with 3 drawers on each side.
