The wood is highly figured oak with loads of stunning rays. This wood is sometimes referred to as tiger oak. The decorative adornments are all original. The machine and cabinet have been cleaned but NOTHING has been RESTORED. Nothing has been polished or buffed.
Nothing has been taken apart. Nothing has been fiddled with or adjusted. Nothing has been repainted and there are zero paint touchups anywhere. No wood has required gluing or needs to be glued. No "coverups" have been made to the finish on the wood.There is zero rust on the cast-iron legs and stand. There are no repairs on the cast iron.
I DID install a new belt. The old belt broke at the hole where the clip staple?
Before the belt broke, I operated the treadle, and the operation was as solid as can be and felt as smooth as silk. NOTE: All photos were made before the new belt was installed. The new belt is a genuine leather, original-appearing belt.
I will include the old belt that broke. The wheels are all originals and all four roll nice and freely.The fold-up extension is crafted from the same wide piece of oak as the original top wood surface. The wood's grain pattern flows from one piece to the next.
The oil-drip catch pan located immediately under the machine itself is still black and shiny and free of all rust. The cast-iron legs are still in their original black paint.The dual needle slide plates are the originals. The flat face plate is ornamented with grape vines. The decals that grace the machine still look amazing. As you can tell from the photos this is a very nice machine. It isn't one that has been sewn together sorry, but I simply HAD to write that! The wood is handsome and the Japan black lacquer is nice and shiny. The decals are simply stunning. The first will be 40" x 32" x 30 and the weight will be about 58 pounds. The second carton will be 20" x 18" x 12 and the weight will be 53 pounds.
