Seller: haggisrocks (273) 100%, Location: CUMBERNAULD, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 264625657837 Antique Gritzner Hand Crank Fiddle Base Sewing Machine in full working order. This is a very rare machine from Circa 1890. It was manufactured just at the end of the fiddle base era for Gritzner of Germany, but features a front foot raising mechanism (earlier machines had the raising mechanism mounted on the side.) This mechanism was usually only found on machines produced after the end of production of Fiddle bases (New Family), so it seems that this is one of a few made to use up the last of the older forgings, but introducing the newer mechanisms. ( The front plate is not interchangeable with newer machines so the machine must have left the factory like this.) The machine has an elaborate floral design and features inlaid Mother of Pearl detail. Included in the sale is a range of accessories including a spare bobbin, several feet for different sewing tasks and some original tools and parts as can be seen in the photographs. The machine sews beautifully and runs freely. Tension-er and stitch size mechanisms work as they should. Perfect for any collector or museum ( or for every day use.) Please study all photographs for condition as they form part of the description. Condition: Used, Condition: Working Condition. Please see photographs., Brand: Gritzner, Modified Item: No, Featured Refinements: Hand Crank Sewing Machine, Type: Mechanical, Country/Region of Manufacture: Germany
