One of the rarest machines in my collection – and one of the smallest. Yes, it’s a genuine Shaw & Clark running-stitch model with a patent date of May 26, 1863 – see here, page 54:

There’s an example of this super-rare machine in the Smithsonian but I’ve never chanced on one in a private collection.
It’s totally complete, of course, and ready to sew – but I wouldn’t suggest running up a set of drapes with it.
