James Galloway Weir was a Scottish Member of Parliament who started a business selling Raymond chain-stitch machines from London’s Soho in the late 1860s.
All went well for a time until he fell out with Raymond – then operating from Canada – and Weir decided to branch out on his own.
He introduced what he called the Improved machine and, also, this lock-stitch model, clearly owing a lot to the Jones serpentine cat-back machine and believed to have been made in France.
Far rarer, of course, than the common Weir chain-stitch machines.

A copy of ISMACS News featuring the history of the Weir and Raymond sewing machines will be sent with this machine.
