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.
