Portable Sewing Machines in Cases
Boy, I really have to congratulate myself for finding this treasure! A total of seven, turn of last century, portable sewing machines, in their original and beautiful wooden cases. Three are identical Singer machines. Then we have two somewhat later Singer models, with the others made by R.&R. and Superb. All have tons of gold-leaf decorations over black enamel, and are in very good albeit used condition. Some of the cases have marquetry, others are domed, and three have what looks like cabinets. They are heavy, and some of the case locks don’t hold the weight any longer, but nothing is broken. Beautiful decorative pieces, which in a pinch could be employed in patching a tear in your jeans.
