    I picked up this 18" long model at an antique shop in Quartzite Arizona. My understanding is that it comes from a textile mill in Connecticut. I would like to know if it is a salesman sample, a patent model, or what. I would also like to find out details for the picker operation, size of the reed, and how the heddles were raised and lowered. Pictures of the complete mechanism would be very helpful!
    Thanks,
    Dan
