Vintage Willcox and Gibbs Sewing Machine w/ Foot Floor Control & Carrying Case. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep for yourself!
Older Willcox & Gibbs sewing machine here. Last patent date on the plate on this one is August 1894. The serial number on the machine is "306745 E1", so would make this machine as having been produced in???? Also has the number 5286 on the front of the machine. Great stenciling left on this machine.
The silver colored plate with all the engraved wording on it is in place. Some minor tarnishing to the nickel plate's finish. The screen on silver plate that would hold the thread spool is there. The gold label is still affixed in place on the base of the Willcox machine as well.
The pieces all move when the side wheel is turned by hand. This unit has an electric foot operator.
The sewing machine does run when plugged into an electrical source, but not when directly plugged into the foot operator. Some blue sparking by the armature, so the motor does need a good cleaning. The wood case is in good condition.
No splits or cracks to the wood. Brass protectors in place in the corners. The brass latch works as well. The sewing machine is 10" tall, by 16-1/8" across, by 6 wide. The sewing machine case is 11-7/8" tall by 22-5/8" across, by 7.5 wide.Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
