Antique Pillar Cast Iron Sewing Machine Shaw & Clark Biddeford, Maine 1860's For Sale

Antique Pillar Cast Iron Sewing Machine Shaw & Clark Biddeford, Maine 1860's

Shaw & Clark Closed Pillar Sewing Machine from offerdeford, Maine The several different models of vintage sewing machines produced by this Maine company are some of the best known and most actively sought after of all antique sewing machines from the early era of production in the mid to late 1800's. Shaw & Clark put out a half dozen or so different models over the years, and they have come to be referred to by nicknames that attempt to describe their distinguishing feature. This example is known as Shaw & Clark's "closed pillar" model. (As an aside, there are also the "open pillar", the "fire hydrant", the "skinny pillar", and a few more variations.) There are also a large number of early knockoffs that are often referred to as " Shaw & Clarks", but which really not---they were manufactured in competition during this era in violation of this company's patents, thus partially explaining their being unmarked. This one is clearly marked with the Shaw & Clark name boldly cast into the bottom of the base as well as on the brass medallion where the patent information can be found next to the pillar. It is extremely rare to find the piece in the center on the base between the medallion and the sewing needle/foot that this one has. The thread holder and crank knob are missing. Though you can see the floral design in places the paint is worn. The movement of the crank works nicely and takes little effort to operate, one might want to lube if desired. Please view photos for condition and details. This is such a nice piece. Measures approximately 11.5" x 9" x 5.5" and weighs 9 lbs 13 oz. This sewing machine is sold as is, as described and as pictured.

Item will be shipped promptly upon receiving cleared payment. Thank you!
