Manufactured by Willcox and Gibbs, Sewing Machine Company, New YorkWillcox and Gibbs: Serial No. A424661 1902 The Willcox & Gibbs Sewing Machine Company was founded in 1857 by James Edward Allen Gibbs and James Willcox with the first machines being finished in November 1858. The company had its first London office in 1861, and by 1871 the company opened its second office as its Chief Office for Europe. Right from the initial production the manufacturing of the Company's single thread, chain stitch machine was undertaken by Brown & Sharpe, Rhode Island and this continued up until 1948. A special hand crank mechanism was produced in England for the European market, but the general design of the Willcox & Gibbs remained essentially the same throughout its production. The Company finally closed in 1973.This Willcox and Gibbs sewing machine was made in America in 1902 and has the less ornate but still elegant hand crank produced for the European market. The cloth plate has a stitch length indicator as well as various patent dates for both the U.S.A. and Great Britain. The sewing machine shows a lot of wear and tear for its age with a worn cloth plate. There is no case, manual or accessories with this machine. All the machines mechanical moving parts are in working order and move freely, I am unable to test stitch this machine as I do not know how it threads.The wooden base has been sanded,stained and varnished by my self. Bought as seen, thank you for looking.
It has been thoroughly cleaned; I am a professional seamstress so have many years of experience working with electric and manual sewing machines. I will expertly pack the sewing machine!!
