    Bought from trademe site I'm really very happy with this and now sworn off buying anymore. It needs some work but I've given it a good polish up in the mean time. There is a mounting plate from around the base of the machine missing, I'm not sure what to call it so searching online is not showing anything anyone know what I should call it or where I can get one?? I have since posting this replaced the mounting, I ended up cutting down another Singer table top to get the right look I painted it enamel black, The machine has also been replaced with my favourite decals, The Pheasant decals this machine is a bit younger than the 1893 0ne I had with the Sphinx decals(I do still own it though!) The cabinet is from between 1895-1905

      Thanks vrobins7 it confused me as I've seen pictures of these cabinets with black metal plates but also the odd one has just wood. The machine I've already dated as I've had it a while, but on another treadle table which I have on here as well. I love the technology and workmanship they've used in their products. This cabinet is just awesome and I'll get some ply and make a piece now you've solved that for me.

      A nice example of a drawing room cabinet :)

      I've found a number 427 indented into the back of each drawer and also appears in the wood under the lid hinge of the cabinet. Any idea what it means?
    5. kpgreg73 kpgreg73, 7 years ago
      I recently found out this cabinet is of UK manufacture around 1900. The 427 number was just so they kept matching wood tones together.

      I have one of these which is slightly more decorative. Are they very rare? Could anyone enlighten me on this?
    7. kpgreg73 kpgreg73, 7 years ago
      Chixo they are rare enough as they were the ultimate cabinet to own by singer. Really collectable. Check outsearches on Google for Antique Singer Parlor Cabinet or Drawing Room Cabinet. Without having seen yours I would guess it's younger than mine.
