Very Rare Antique~c1870~ "Whight & Mann" "Prima Donna" Lockstitch Sewing Machine

THIS IS ON THE UK SITE AND LISTED IN GB POUNDS

Rare Antique

~ c1870 ~

"Prima Donna"

"Whight & Mann"

Sewing Machine.

This very rare and stunning "Prima Donna" 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.

"Whight & Mann" manufactured this machine at their Gipping Works Factory in Ipswich, England from 1869 to 1876. "Whight & Mann" ceased trading around 1886.

The "Prima Donna" lockstich sewing machine is known to exist in only very limited numbers and rarely comes up for sale.

The machine itself is good "as found" condition, most of its' exquisite gilt decoration is present, especially to the cloth plate. The black paint has small areas of paint loss mainly to the edges of the wheel and the cloth plate.

The cast body with its' single lions paw support 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 brass shuttle covers and front plate have dulled over the years. One of the brass shuttle covers is marked"9889 +" and the front plate with "P". The shuttle is present and moves as it should.

The wooden base is intact with no splits, chips or cracks.

The porcelain handle is still present and has some crazing to it, the machine still has a good movement but would benefit from some lubrication. I believe the machine is complete and all the mechanisms work as they should.

It measures approx 32 cm (12 1/2 inches) long by 16.5 cm (6 1/2 inches) at its widest and 30 cm (12 inches) high.

Unfortunately the machine no longer has its case; but be assured that it will be packed with great care.
