"Princess of Wales"

"Newton Wilson & Co."

Sewing Machine.

This "Princess of Wales" sewing machine is in "as found" condition and has NOT been re-painted or restored by us. As can be seen from the photographs the machine hasn't been cleaned as we know collectors prefer originality and history in rare items such as this.

This machine was manufactured by Newton Wilson & Co. which was founded by William Newton Wilson who was one of the pioneers of the sewing machine industry in Great Britain and was involved in the sewing machine trade from 1851.In 1870 production of the highly ornate "The Princess of Wales" lock-stitch machine commenced, this was to form the mainstay of the firms sewing machine range.The retail part of the business was undertaken at 144 High Holborn London until 1883 when a new Depot at 102 Southampton Row London was opened.

The machine, unfortunately, has lost most of its' gilt decoration and the original black japanning has worn away in places.

The very ornate cast body with its' pineapples and feathers is intact with no chips or cracks that I can find, there are the usual marks and scuffs that you would expect to an item of this age and use.

The metal work shows signs of surface rust, the cloth plate is stamped "Newton Wilson & Co., Patent, 144 Holborn, London" and "61015".

The two porcelain handles are still present, they are both crazed and discoloured and the larger handle has some damage to the base, the machine still moves as it should when the handle is turned, but would benefit from some lubrication.

The machine comes with its' original wooden case.

It measures approx 33 cm (13 inches) long by 18 cm (7 inches) at its widest and 30 cm (12 inches) high.
