When the Moldacot bubble burst in the late 1880s and the Company finally went into liquidation, machines were bought up by dealers and wholesalers and many were re-marketed in an attempt to re-invent the machine.
It happened that a number were bought by a Spanish wholesaler who re-named the machines the Bonita (meaning pretty).
This is one such machine in totally original condition carrying a low serial number and a Made in Germany stamping.
It’s complete with original bobbin and shuttle.
Don’t expect any great sewing performance from these. When they were made, they were castigated in the sewing machine Trade Press and it was later revealed that the entire set-up of the Company, the production and the shares sold amounted to little more than a scam.
