I love the beautiful gold trim. The cord on the right attaches to a foot treadle that "posers" the machine.

@Steyn: Yes, and come back Friday for a contrast.
They really were wonderful machines with great decorations. And they worked fine as well!

@Mahnoor Saghir: This was on the farm museum located on Washington Island, in Door County, Wisconsin. Here is a link to their site:
Superb capture of the machine . I saw one at home when I was a child !

I love how so much detail was put into these old machines. The decoration is just beautiful. I have a singer and it works but it sure is nothing to look at! Beautiful image!

est-ce un hasard que je tombe sur cette machine à coudre,j'adore tellement la vieille singer que je regrette d'avoir vendu celle de ma belle-mère,car la mienne que j'ai acheté récemment est partie en réparation...

@L'angevine: Since this one was in a farm museum, the coincidence can be of no benefit ti you.
