A superb late example of the Moldacot in great condition and with the desirable open wheel cranking mechanism.
It comes with its original tin box which also houses the needle-setting gauge and the bobbin-winder handle.
It is, of course, complete with the 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.

Please note that, like other tin-boxed Moldacots, the crank mechanism has to be dismantled for it to sit in the box.
The box in this case is the blue version with superb graphics and a picture of the machine pasted inside the lid. Under that blue-backed drawing will be the original instructions screen-printed on the lid’s interior.
They actually refer to the earlier “pusher” model when the cranked version was introduced rather than re-invent the wheel the Company simply pasted a picture over the original instructions.
