Very Rare Cast Iron C-frame Pony Toy Sewing Machine:
For sale is this very rare cast iron Pony toy sewing machine. This machine is quite unique since it is one of few cast iron machines with a C-shaped frame. Usually, this type of machine is made out of wooden frame but for the Pony, they have made an exception. The machine is in very nice condition. The paintwork and decals are very well preserved. The machines comes with the original wooden base which is a bit rough however the back of the base is a better preserved. If desired, this can be twisted 180 degrees. This machine is thought to have been made by the Foley & Williams factory since the building style, mechanism and designs are very similar to other machines from that company, such as the Midget and Reliable toys.
A similar machine can be found on plate 332 on page 148 in the book “Toy and Miniature Sewing Machines” book I written by Glenda Thomas.
The machine will sell with a realistic reserve based on its rarity just to protect the money that we have invested in it.
Actual shipping costs will be determined after the end of the sale, depending on weight of the parcel and final destination. We do – of course – offer combined shipping in case of multiple purchases.
Payment per PayPal from overseas buyers preferred. I am sorry but I can no longer accept checks.
