Frister and Rossmann Chainstitch Sewing Machine

This lovely little chainstitch machine was obviously based on the American made Willcox and Gibbs and except for some minor differences is almost identical. Although I have no proof I believe they were made under licence and I believe would date to c1900. Its serial number is 3640.
Although the serial number is quite low I would think that the numbers only relate to this model which were definately made in very small numbers.
Unfortunately I do not have the cover for it. It would be wonderful to get one :-)
Cheers   Rob
