Sold as one set collection, not as separate pieces.

This group of vintage sewing machines was found as a collection, bought upon the closing of the Old Rakaia Museum, dusted off, and cleaned up a bit.

It's a wonderful collection of sturdy metal sewing machines, spanning the decades of early late 1800's to 1970's. Some have signs with historical references. Some of the machines are more ornamental and some still work! Of the seventeen, ten are made by the Singer Manufacturing Co of Great Britain, including:
-a Singer that came on the first ship that harboured in Akaroa
-a Singer Front Sew from 1970
-a Singer from 1942 and used during the war years
-a Singer from 1950's with all of the compenents (tools etc) still boxed up (just like it was bought from the store)

Other machine types include:
-a Domestic Rotary with about 30-40 old tin buttons
-a German Sew Master
-a Bristish made Sew Tric Ltd
-a Chzech made Lada
-a Wilcox and Gibbs (USA) early lubrication style (which were some of the first auto. machines)
