Antique Vintage Collectible Hancock Patent TSM / Toy Sewing Machine. This sale is for the Hancock Patent TSM / Toy Sewing Machine pictured above. It is in exceptional original condition.This is a rare and unusual variant from other examples known. This machine's design, with a large decorated cast iron mounting plate, is a feature that has never been seen before. I have had Hancock sewing machines with the same style head, but the spool pin was mounted differently on each, including one with a patented folding design. The condition of this rare and unique machine is like new, with 98% of the original paint and decoration. It has its original hooked needle.
Sewing machines based on the Henry J. Hancock patents from the 1860's are well known, highly regarded, and do turn up from time to time.They are considered pretty rare, and rightfully so. Some are marked with one patent date, I have had them with three dates, and some, like this one, have no markings at all. This variant had never been seen before that.
No other examples appeared right after or since that I know of. A rare machine in exceptional condition! A perfect addition for the collection of early & unusual sewing machines or Americana. Please look at all the pics to see the details and condition. Each picture above is a Thumbnail that can be clicked to see the full size image.
