My New Baby....

On Saturday I cruised by my favourite second-hand shed.  It's amazing what I find there, and I love the Lions guys and girls they are great.  I happily strolled past the entrance and found this lovely baby.  I looked and went, "you need to come home with me, you need to be loved.".  The Lovely Lion Guys and Girls, put a sold sticker on it and it was mine!!!!!!  

Okay there was another lady wanted it, but she didn't get there first.  HAHA (Evil laugh) its mine. I'm not even going to tell you how much I paid, that is so wrong.  I feel that I am gloating.   Oh well I'm going too...........Think low............real low, Giant gremlin even smiled. Then he lugged it off to the car.

I had never heard of this manufacturer, and when I "Googled" I still don't know much.  So any help would be greatly appreciated.  I have never seen bodkins like it before.  It also works...
 
  
  

I'm off to work out how to conserve the docket I found in the tool box, Manchester on Thyme in 1953.  I am loving this baby, did I mention the wooden hardcase with working lock and keys.  

Did I mention the artwork......

Over my gloating now, thanks for listening because the gremlins are sick and tired of it.

Take care Suzy

I learnt to sew 60 years ago on my mother's Jones treadle - unfortunately long gone - but several years ago I bought another treadle in a cabinet which I should actually open up and use for something other than a dumping ground. There is a lot of information on the internet about Jones machines. Are the bobbins long thin spindles?- I couldn't see in your photos. I'm surprised that a 1953 machine still used those - maybe it was bought secondhand then which is a real possibility so soon after WW2
