Here’s a super-early pusher model Moldacot carrying the ultra-low serial number of 233 and a patented in London stamping.
It’s a genuine “pusher” model – not a hand-crank with missing parts. This is clear from the lack of any mounting holes at the rear.
This was obviously made before the Company did it’s deal with the Metal Box Company to supply tin boxes for the machines, as it has one of the very early cardboard boxes with brief instructions printed inside the lid.
And with this machine we also have a complete and great-condition instruction sheet, original screwdriver, bobbin tweezers, bobbin winder crank and needle-setting gauge.
There are also a couple of original needles in the box and, of course, it has its original miniature 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.
