    I picked up this vintage sewing machine/singer machine from a deseased estate. I recognize this piece as Sweden Husqvarna "12"; but from another mark
    "rothenborg" that indicates it is a Danmark trademark. Really confused.... it is a manual one rather than a electric piece
    Any one can tell?

      it's simple...once the whole thing was husqvarna...the actual sewing machine broke...but the frame mounted another sewing machine on the old frame...

      Nice guessing, yes the case and the machine bear different brands.

      To Bellin68:
      Thank you!~~The most important things are that the sewming machine is a manual one and it works, because it is a gift for my mother who are only able to use manual one. After her retirement, she would like to do some needle works that recall her childhood. I just want to find relevant information to help her to start to use it as it is really hard to find instruction for a vintage sewing machine.

      either that...(it's the most plausible...since in those times they were expensive...and you couldn't get just the frame/carying would buy the whole thing or reuse parts)...or it's fake...but i doubt that since you say it's functional...usually fakes fall appart and are not usable..they look like they are ok but when you try to use them they break almost instant...
      I myself got a Singer...but it's with a foot pedal...(and original spare parts)

      this machine certainly looks to be a Husqvarna, that has been sold or serviced by the Danish company that has added their badge. No mystery, just a retailer adding their 'mark' :)
