The mechanism is working, and the sewing machine is in good condition considering it’s 109 years old the porcelain handle is missing. From the crank and the machine Comes with what was a beautiful inlaid case but the inlay is badly damaged on the top and the handle is missing, also the lock needs a key However the machine itself is in very good aesthetic and working condition and would still make a fine working sewing machine or display piece without the case top The case could be restored quite easily to a decent level by removing the top layer of inlay and sanding staining and varnishing there is also a little damage to the wooden base and a new piece of plywood needs to be replaced on the underneath to repair the compartment along with a little piece of moulding that could be replaced on one edge Please study the photos carefully as they form part of the description. Obviously the item is large and heavy and this is reflected in the postage costs Condition: Used, Condition: See photos and description, Featured Refinements: Antique Sewing Machine
