Item:202781612523Singer Treadle Sewing Machine 1936 Still Works. Local pickup only. Singer Treadle Sewing Machine dated July 20, 1936 is still in Good working order, and has all the original attachments, manual, bobbin holder and bobbins, as well as the original leather belt and spare! What a find! These old time sewing machines are real work horses as well as highly decorative for your country home or sewing room. And who of us hasn’t wanted one of these old beauties to grace our home? Makes a wonderful conversation piece or shop decor for a sewing or crafting store. Machine hides in case when not in use giving you a valuable and decorative surface. Lid folds open to give you extra sewing space. The machine itself is quite lovely, and quite heavy duty being cast of solid iron. It has beautiful decorative gold scrolling around and on the base, as well as on the machine. It has a gold logo medallion that says: THE SINGER MANFG. CO. TRADE MARK. The serial number is: AD978838 The side of the machine that holds the needle and thread is a silver metal that is intricately work in an Art Deco design. The belt is the original leather belt that has ends attached with a small wire loop and hook but the hook has come detached. There is an identical spare belt in one of the drawers. The case has four drawers with wooden knob handles. One drawer contains spare belt, bobbins, and a couple screw type pieces. The second drawer contains a ruffler and the original box of 9 attachments and several screw in pieces. The third drawer is empty. The fourth drawer has the original manual for this machine although the cover, while still on it, has become detached. The 5th drawer is a “secret compartment” on the front of the case. (See photos). Originally, the drawers all locked shut but I didn’t find the key in any of the drawers. I did sew a couple straight seams on an old flour sack towel by hand advancing the wheel and it still sews just fine. If you’re going to use this as an operating sewing machine and not just a decor piece, I would strongly advise having it professionally cleaned and oiled, as well as having the ends of the belt reattached. The moving parts including the Treadle all still move. I gave it a dusting and polishing but I am not a professional repair person. The veneer on the cabinet is somewhat worn, mainly on the top, but also on the drawers. A good polishing diminished the noticeability of the wear, but this is definitely a machine that was sewn on. The wheel has small dots of rust which a professional could probably remove. Machine measures approximately 38” tall with machine, and 31” tall when closed. It is 34” wide and 16” deep.Condition:Used, Modified Item:No, Country/Region of Manufacture:United States, Original/Reproduction:Vintage Original
