Best-known for its famous Shakespear and Challenge lock-stitch machines, the Royal Sewing-Machine Company of Birmingham, England, in the 1860s/’70s, produced one chain-stitch model, the Eugenie.
The machine was not a financial success, very few selling and even fewer, of course, surviving today, making it the rarest of the Royal full-size machines.
