The Singer class 12 / New Family' domestic machine of 1865 is described as the most successful machine of the nineteenth century and the foundation of Singers dominance of the sewing machine market.Although Singer gave up manufacturing it in the 1890s, clones of it continued to be made up until the 1930s. My research leads me to believe that this machine dates from 1867 making it a good early example. The machine sits in what I believe to be a walnut base and slides in to a walnut case, which still has its original lock and key.
The machine is in remarkably good condition for age. There are rubs / wear/ small losses to the decals in places and general signs of wear but overall she still looks lovely. The mechanism moves freely and she still sews, I have also been able to wind a bobbin and adjust stitch size.The case and and base have been sympathetically polished to enhance, but not remove the character and history of this beautiful item. Please look at the condition report and photographs. A video of the working machine is also available at the bottom of this page.
