Ward Brothers Sewing Machine
Just love these gorgeous Daisy Decals on this “Vesta” made Hand crank machine sold by Ward Brothers in Melbourne. She looks like she has hardly been used.
This machine is a vibrating shuttle with the long style shuttle. It also can sew in reverse
Vesta manufactured this machine c1930’s. It began as L.O.Dietrich based at Altenberg in Germany. The name was changed to Vesta around 1910 .
Ward Brothers were a big department store based in Melbourne.
Notice the pin cushion on the parts box.
If you click on the photos they will enlarge nicely.
