Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE Here is your chance to own an original, working piece of American history from the turn of the century. The New England Queen treadle sewing machine is estimated to have been manufactured between 1904 and 1916, but most likely was built around 1910. This beautiful, working treadle sewing machine folds down into an elegant, quarter-sawn, Colonial-style oak cabinet. It includes an original box of presser feet attachments with purchase. All metal bobbin shuttles are still located in the machine and the belt is made of leather and still works. I have a wooden case of Boye no. 14 needles available for purchase as well if interested. This machine offers you a great opportunity to try out some genuine heirloom sewing on a treadle machine.The “New England Queen” model is a nameplate attributed to the A.G. Mason Sewing Machine Company out of Cleveland, OH. The “Morley Brothers” name is believed to be attributed to the Morley Bros. hardware store located in Saginaw, Michigan at that time. A 1910 Morley Brothers Hardware Store catalogue describes the “New England Queen” sewing machine as follows: “There is nothing in the line of family sewing that the New England Queen will not take care of promptly, satisfactorily, and with efficiency.” A.G. Mason manufactured identical machines for other retailers between 1880 and 1916. In 1916, A.G. Mason was purchased by the Domestic Sewing Machine Company which later merged with the White Sewing Machine Co. in the 1920s.Local pick-up only in 49509 zip code area.
