Here’s a super-rare English Whight & Mann from around 1860.
Sorry, I’ve no links to give you for more information – there’s just too little know about the machine.
We do know that it was made by the Whight & Mann Company in Gipping Works, Ipswich, and that the Company had offices in Holburn, London.
Whight & Mann, of course, is better known for its Prima Donna hand-crank machines, but a couple of these Whight & Mann models have survived, including this one.
It’s a needle-feed machine and would originally have sat on a treadle base.
It clearly owes a lot to the American West and Willson of 1859-- see https://tinyurl.com/y75x5z6n page 119.
