Wheeler + Wilson 9 Treadle
Wheeler and Wilson 9 Treadle.
I just love the pressed pattern in the wood. Made around 1900. Although Common in America it is quite rare in Australia. When we received this treadle it was covered in thick black grime and you could not tell that the handles were brass until we started cleaning and then amazingly the pressed wood was also visible.
Elsewhere on the blog there is also a W+W9 Handcrank and a W+W4 Treadle.
Singer bought out Wheeler and Wilson in 1905, however they kept making this model for a couple of years after this and called it a Singer 9W. As always click on the photos to enlarge for Closeups
Hopefully I can post a couple of Quilting blocks soon. Am sewing slowly but have not been well. Getting there.
