On Monday, I casually asked the current price of the machine expecting the out of my budget price of a year ago. I was pleasantly surprised to hear a price that as 10% of the original! The owner had not followed through on his refurbishment plans and wanted the constant reminder of that failure gone. It is not substitute for the Singer 201 I was looking for in my previous post, but I could not let this gem go. For the cost of a week of designer coffee, we had a deal!
Here is my Antique Singer 15-88 Treadle machine from 1948.
|Folded in the cabinet.|
|Well loved, but in good condition.|
|The decals on the back are in great condition.|
|The front decals are worn from putting it in the cabinet.|
|Cast Iron treadle in great shape.|
|The hand wheel.|
|Singer trade mark|
|The leather strap is connected, but worn.|
|The veneer is a mess, but the wood beneath is solid.|
The machine came with tons of feet for this low shank machine. I know what some are, others, I have no clue. If you know, please share.
I will share the updates as they come. I am excited to get to know this machine.
