1930c Jones "art Deco" Hand Crank Sewing Machine Made In United Kingdom "wow" For Sale
This1930c JonesFamily C.S. Hand Crank Sewing Machinemade by the Jones Manufacturing Company, Guidebridge, Manchester, England with the serial #390291. The decal set is called"green teardop's" and has a very ART DECO feel and design to the pattern.Its interesting that the name on this machine is "Bradbury's VS Family". By 1929Bradbury had closed its doors as a Sewing Machinemaker and had been one of Jones primary competators in the UK market. Even though Jones soldits machines to anyone andwould add any name the buyer wanted I find itodd thatthey would have put Bradbuy's name on one of their machines. Its possible Jones was taking advantage of the closure of the Bradbury Company.This machine is also classified as a badged machine as it does not carry the Jones name.
"William Jones started making sewing machines in 1859, and in 1860 formed a partnership with Thomas Chadwick. Trading as Chadwick & Jones they manufactured sewing machines at Ashton-under-Lyne. This partnership was short lived and in January 1864 Thomas Chadwick joined Bradbury & Co.In 1869 Jones opened a factory in Guide Bridge Nr Manchester and the firm became incorporated (Limited) on 5th July 1879. It survives today as Brother UK Ltd. The Jones Company produced a variety of machines for both Domestic and Industrial use. " (quoted from Lin and Dave Best website sewmuse.co.uk)
