After or so years the box, as would be expected, is in fragile condition. One small piece of one paw foot has some damage as shown in the pics. There are also some minor scratches in the table top. I imagine that explains their relative scarcity. In addition to the famous gun line he also made a great coffee mill, and they, like the guns are much favored amongst collectors. This example is complete with the seam guide, the needle, the clamp, and a very tattered cardboard box.
This machine is sure to be a standout in any sewing machine collection!
At first glance you will notice a similarity in the design of the rounded double upper arm to that of the popular Wilcox and Gibbs sewing machine. It can be repaired. There are also some minor scratches in the table top. It is designed so that the presser foot acts as the feed. This machine weighs over 20lbs, and is pretty massive. This is an extremely rare model sewing machine and one of the few that we have ever seen. The small knob on the crank wheel is a later replacement.
