Isn't this AWESOME!!! I can't tell you how excited I was to find this. I paid $29.99 for it at a local second hand store. Can you imaging sewing with that crank arm? The case is curved oak with a handle for ease of carrying. I researched the serial number on it and found it was made in 1922. The picture isn't the greatest (sorry) but i used the camera on my cell phone to capture it. It has beautiful etched and scrolled artwork on the silver parts and gorgeous gold and red paint to boot. This will make a nice conversation piece in my "craft" room as I call it. I have been trying to collect some old thimbles, scissors, etc. to display in a shadow box that I will hang on the wall above the machine. I hope you are jealous with envy!!! (I know I would be if you bragging about it on your blog!).
