A very rare and interesting little Kimball & Morton’So-All’ sewing machine, with fiddlebase, freearm and mother of pearl decoration. Part of my personal collection and I’ve spent about ten hours on it so I’m in no rush to sell this one, but it deseves to be shown off and eventually find a new home. I may let it go cheaper closer to Christmas so feel free to leave sensible offers. As always, enjoy the research! As you can see, it has been completely stripped and polished. Unfortunately I don’t yet have a needle to set the timing but it’s a very simple matter of removing the central gear and slipping it back in the correct position. Every single screw is free and easy to undo. Uses a highly unusual needle feed mechanism, whereby the needle actually moves the fabric along with no feed underneath. Shuttle and bobbin included. The decals are more visible in real life, my camera is struggling with the surface gloss against a light background, but in any case they’re quite faint. The wooden base measures 26cm x 16cm.
