I bought this late 1800's sewing machine a few weeks ago, intending to restore it. I've been researching what it is, but I don't know what model of Domestic it is. I looked on this website to identify its model: http://www.kelsew.info/Domestic/domesticmodelsnolinks.html
None of them match. It comes very close to being the fiddlebase model, except the stitch length control knob isn't behind the pillar, it's in front. Also, the thing on the top of the arm is a bit different, and the gold designs are not the same. It's not a New Domestic, it's not a Domestic C or D, it's not a handcrank or a high arm, and it's not any of the other models listed on that website.
It comes in a cabinet with a flip top, but it's not the desk model. It's not the model with two cabinet doors, as it only has one door that opens to the left. It has a foot pedal, so it's not an electric model.
I would really like to know more about this machine; as much as possible, in fact, so that I can return it to its original state. Any help is greatly appreciated.
