    My daughter recently received this treadle machine which was her great-grandmother's. I cannot find any identifying marks on it serial number, no name, (no "S"), nothing. She wants me to restore it for her, which I can do, but I'd like to have an idea what I'm working on. Unfortunately it sat in a barn for the last 60 years. I've tried to add the pictures that might be most helpful. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      I just wondered if you found anything on your sewing machine. I have one that is similar and I am having trouble identifying it as well
