    This machine IS a Singer, but is not old. They are still produced with these very bright decals, in Asia and India, for the countries that do not have a ready supply of electricity. The serial number should be under the machine. It's not possible to date these machines with Singer website.

    It is a hand crank and was sold as one.

    There was a really good book out on Egyptomania that came out in about 1994 or so put out by the Ottawa and Paris national museums, and they had one of these in there display for the Egyptian logo. The book was about collecting things inspired by old Egypt. ! Phil.

    Links above to the Singer Nostalgia machine, although I still feel that yours is an Asian made machine, they're probably much the same.

    sewingfool I agree that there are older machines out there that are in wonderful condition. I can tell rom the photos that this one is not old - there are quite a few clues. Firstly the Red Singer S badge. The striped engraving on the faceplate and rear inspection, the lack of a serial number on the bed, and the round feed dog dropping knob - compare all these to the 'brand new' Nostalgia machine. The colours in the decals are also different to the original Sphinx. The gold look is much 'brighter'. I can't tell for certain whether this is a Nostalgia machine or if it's an Asian made machine, technically there probably isn't much difference. The serial number will be in the centre front below the bed edge.

    Mr Wilson I just noticed this machine is missing it's spool pin. You should be able to get one from a Singer shop.

    You see Sewingfool I did not pick it as a new machine just because it looks bright and shiny, there are many other indications.

    SORRY FOR THE LATE RESPONCE, MY GOOD FRIENDS, BUT I CLEAN THE MACHINE UP, AND WENT OVER IT WITH A COAT OF WAX,AND SHE CAME OUT GREAT

    IT IS A HAND CRANK- THE ONLY NUMBER I FOUND UNDER THE BOTTOM IS #83- AND #10 BEHIND THE STEAL PLATE ON THE SIDE OF IT

    Mr Wilson I'm still intrigued that you didn't find a serial number on this machine :) The other hiding place could be right up under the lip where the machine sits in the wooden edge - you would nearly need to turn the machine upside down out of the base to see, perhaps with a torch (flashlight?) . Or, the Nostaligia machines have a metal plate fitted in the centre front below the bed edge, is there anything to show that this may have been removed?
