    This was a machine style I've been hunting for! Ever since seeing the "horseshoe" style machines, I knew I had to have one. The gentleman I purchased this from said his mother purchased it brand-new. It is in surprisingly lovely condition, although the table became lost in time somewhere... I'm happy to have it as a table-top unit instead. The funniest thing about it is the foot pedal; it's heavier than the machine itself! It came with two attachments, two sets of needles, and all of the manuals - including for the electric motor optional attachment setup, and the little sewing gadgets! Too cute for words! <3

      Thank you very much! It's been rewired, cleaned and polished top-to-bottom. It's actually FUN to sew on. I never would've guessed.

      I have a cast iron treadle base I restored it!! Very Ornate!! Tulip like flowing sides
      and the treadle two ornate footprints. I put a Marble top on it and use it as my Laptop and printer table. All the tables in our ice cream shop have sewing machine bases
      When I get back home in Feb. I'll put it up on CW
