DESCRIPTION : Century Old New Conover Treadle Sewing Machine With Cabinet And Attachments Box Sold By Hibbard Spencer & Bartlett Of Chicago Illinois. CONDITION : The cabinet has some wear and water stains from being used as a plant stand for many years. Most of the wood problems are on the top. The drawers are solid. The treadle and machine spin freely and the needle moves up and down. There is a belt in the drawer, though I have never attached it. The attachment case is in nice shape and just needs the dust wiped off. COMMENTS : Sold as is and there is NO shipping on this item. It must be picked up in person. Originally sold by a large hardware and iron firm in Chicago that later sold out and became True Value. I suspect the treadle may be their own design. Conover was an employee of Hibbard Spencer & Bartlett. I believe the machine may actually be a Singer, though I am not exactly sure. I will leave that to you experts and bidders to determine.
