Tracked and aged by its serial number this is a piece we recently collected for refurbishment. At 130 years old this piece took time and work to bring back but well worth it. Made in 1889 this is an older model from the Singer range with a wooden Pitman and the Shuttle system.
The Singer Model 27 and later model 127 were a series of lockstitch sewing machines produced by the Singer Manufacturing Company from the 1880s to the 1960s. They were Singer’s first sewing machines to make use of “vibrating shuttle” technology.
Millions were produced, they are all steel and were built before the advent of planned obsolescence, and so they were designed to be repaired rather than replaced, consequently many remain today some in collections and others still in service. In company literature they were called “the woman’s faithful friend the world over”. We are waiting on a few parts then it will be listed in our shop.
