DG's Sewing Machines(9 Photos) These are some of the sewing machines I own. The 66-1 is 'Belle' - my Grandmother's treadle. The 66 Redeye is 'Red', my first restoration. The 28 handcrank is 'Rose'. The 201 is 'Hester' & the 15-30 circa 1908 hasn't yet told me her name, but she loves to sew. I haven't yet restored the little 24, but I WILL!

Rare painted Iron Work(3 Photos) Haven't seen any other like this. All the metal inside this Singer model 21 parlor cabinet machine is faux painted to look like the oak the cabinet is made of. Any ideas as to how many were made this way?

New Imperial(7 Photos) Hand Crank by New Home (from what I was told by the seller) Serial Number is 2256618. Looking for a manuel and attachments for the machine. Can anyone give more information regarding if this was made by the New Home sewing machine Co?
Singer G4940444(0 Photos) This singer was a gift from my friend Kim, I have named it after her father James Edward III who use to sew on the machine when Kim was a little girl. The machine is a red eye 66 in a parlor cabinet #22 and is in prestine condition.
Nelson Rotary Shuttle Sewing Machine(11 Photos) A friend of mine has this Nelson Rotary Shuttle Sewing Machine (I assume that is the machine's title, as it says Nelson on the machine itself and the manual says, "Rotary Shuttle Sewing Machine"). I found a place that says, "Nelson Sewing Machine Company Cleveland, Ohio USA." Then I found a small plate with "1237914" on it and yet another plate that lists a lot of patent dates in the 1800s. It is a treadle in a very nice cabinet (some minor veneer damage to the cabinet). The machine works lovely, has an original box of attachments and its manual with it, all in excellent condition. The trouble is that I have not been able to find one place that ever mentions a Nelson sewing machine, nor seen a picture of one that looks like it. When one opens the cabinet top, the machine automatically rises to its position. The machine is painted black with a lot of gold design also painted on. I am not a sewing machine collector, and I know very little about them. Can anyone tell me anything about this machine? Was it perhaps just a local name for a larger manufacturer (badge or whatever they call it?) or what can you tell me? If it was a local name, who would the larger manufacturer be? I also would like a date for the machine if possible. I have no idea. Thank you so kindly. I am attaching eleven photos to hopefully help in its identification and history.

Stefs Stuff(8 Photos) I haven't figured out how to put my comments beneath the pictures, so...The first 2 are of my 15-91 e-machine. Next 2 are the 1880's Davis VF before we restored it. Obviously the next 2 are of the same 1880's Davis VF AFTER we restored it, but before my MIL got it for Christmas. Then there is my baby...Stella. My 1894 Stardard Rotary....what a girl she is.

Un known cabinet(9 Photos) 6 drawers, opening is 17 1/2 cm front to back,37 1/2 cm left to right,23 cm inside pin to pin. I was told it might be an Elgin machine that was inside. It had a boat shuttle and it was long and skinny not a Singer. It never worked so I gave it to Goodwill. My mistake....Any help as to what I can put inside this cabinet would be great.
