This all nickel plated, early art deco Ideal Sewing Machine was produced around 1920.
It is one of the most gorgeous looking sewing machines ever made.
The photograph below is from Glenda Thomas' book "Toy and Miniature Sewing Machines."
A great specimen for any collection.
This is an excellent addition to your collection or a spectacular decorative piece for your sewing room.
Unlike our 222K Featherweight machines the toy machines we sell have not been tested for sewing.
These machines were produced for less than five years, possibly only for one year.
It is hard to believe that this machine is around 100 years old.
It has a walking foot.
This machine is the type "B" machine with many improvements over the type "A" machine.
A noticeable change from the type "A" to "B" is the addition of the "Ideal" face plate.
The type "A" machine, which did not have a face plate, is on the right.
The carrying case is a tin case.
The case, as well as the sewing machine, is in excellent condition.
I have downloaded a copy of the instructions for the Ideal Type "A" machine.
