Pfaff Model L Treadle

Finding machines in this condition is difficult no matter what the brand. Finding  Pfaff’s in this condition is almost impossible. This one is in extremely fine condition. Click on the photos to enlarge for more detail.

The Red Felts on the Spool Pins are the original ones cut in a Flower Shape.
endplate The  endplate has a beautiful etched design.CoffinThe Woodwork was cleaned but other than taht the finish was original. See the inlaid ruler along the edge.

The paint and goldwork on the treadle frame is all original. All Rob did was polish it with extra cut car polish which cleaned it up and gave it a fine finish. Look Carefully and you can see the pincushion that slides around from underneath. and at the back near the Pfaff name is where Oil Cans sat.
drawer
Even the drawer has the has the Pfaff name on the Keyhole Plate  Cheers Rob and Lynne

Just beautiful! I can't believe the little red felt spool things are still there. I thought I was doing good still hanging onto the ones for my 1994 Bernina and I only have one out of two.
