Here’s a super-rare machine from the 1860s. I know of only one other example.
This was the first machine, a chain-stitch model, introduced by the Taylor Company and what followed was a series of lock-stitch models.
There is actually considerable evidence that these machines may well have been made in Hamburg, Germany, and not in England. The evidence for this theory is given here:
And I do remember pioneer sewing machine historian, William Newton Wilson, stating in the 1880s that the Taylor machines had been made in Hamburg.
Machine is totally original, apart from replacement belt, and is totally operational.
