Another one-of-a-kind survivor. Clearly a Nussey & Pilling machine made by the Leeds manufacturer, probably in the early 1870s, and labelled for Chas Gooch, a Hereford dealer who specified that the machine should be titled The Byron.
No explanation for this has been found but, certainly, the ornamentation gives a very dramatic appeal.
It’s a lock-stitch machine, of course, and everything is complete and original.

It’s certainly an up-market model with its porcelain handle and intricate gold-leaf design.
