Adler Wheeler and Wilson 9 Copy c1900

adlerFrW

Yet another copy of the very successful Wheeler and Wilson 9 design with a few modifications, this beautiful German Adler is extremely well made and very heavy. It has a lovely Art Nouveau influenced design and came complete with its amazingly decorative wooden Dome.

The dome is beautiful. Love the eagle on it. When I used to be on the hunt for the vintage & antique machines, I was always attracted to the very decorative ones. Couldn't afford most but it was fun to look.

Well the Adler's a beauty! Is Rob's philosophy "machine out, machine in"? Just wondering, as I'm looking forward to re-homing that 201 from you very soon!
Your fabric stash must be as nice as the machine collection, I think, from the blocks you've displayed so far.
Cheers,
Stephanie
