The Agenoria - This small English Handcrank was made by A Maxfield and Co at the Agenoria Works in Birmingham around 1872. This was one of a number of small English machines made at this period of time as a cheap alternative to the bigger and more complicated Singer style machines. The Brass plate on the end of the machine features Brittania and the English Lion and is a Lockstitch machine with a boat shuttle.
We found this lovely machine in New Zealand a few years ago - Definately Not a cheap alternative anymore.
