ANTIQUE Chas Charles RAYMOND Cast Iron Sewing Machine 1872 Small UK. So I know very little about this. What I can see is that it has a Patent number dating to 1872.
It seems to be in complete and working condition. It is very solid and heavy despite being quite small for a sewing machine(have a look at all the detailed pictures). It is mounted onto what looks a marble base. I would guess it weighs around 13- 15 kg's altogether.
You can just tell by looking at it- and working the mechanism- that this was a finely crafted and expensive item way back in its day. The crank moves freely and the needles move up and down smoothly. It seem to all be working as it should.It shows its age with some of the fine paintwork details having worn away over the last 150 odd years... Let me know if you have any specific questions about this sewing machine an dI will endeavour to answer them. Special Note for Cameras and related items.
I take many detailed images of each item so you can visually judge the cosmetic condition and see if there is any obvious damage (larger versions of the images are below: scroll down) Cameras and vintage photographic equipment is tested where possible (basically) and briefly described, any faults detected are mentioned: however unless stated no cameras have been tested with film- or professional diagnostic equipment. Such vintage items are only described and their most basic and important features noted. Tiny imperfections, flaws, specks of dust etc- may occur and not be described or mentioned. Issues that can only be found when film is run through the camera may not show up. All goods are described as accurately as possible to avoid problems.
