German Handcrank with Angels

 GermanHCASFrwGermanHCASCUwGermanHCASw  Domew
If you look closely in the centre of the bed and in the corners(the pictures can be enlarged-just click on them) you can see Angels on this beautiful German Saxonia Handcrank Machine. Machines with the large handwheels and internal gears are often called Saxonia machines as most of them were made in this part of Germany. This particular machine was made by Stoewer and would date to around 1900. Notice the porcelain Handle on the crank. Cheers Rob
