My sweet hubby jumped right on it and suggested that I call the owner and make him an offer.
Needless to say, my offer was accepted. René sacrificed his afternoon to drive all the way out to Valley Center (aka The Boonies) to check it out for me. He was impressed with it and loaded it up and brought it home to me. (Reason #1,894,765 that I love this man.)
So, it is a Singer Treadle Sewing Machine Model No. 66.
The coolest thing is that the decal pattern is called Memphis Sphinx. What do you think about that? :)
The cabinet is in remarkable shape! I adore the finishing work on the cabinet.
The decaling around the throat and the plate is worn, but that just shows this machine was well-loved.
The detailing is exquisite!
I have ordered a new leather belt for the treadle, and can't wait to put this beauty to work!
