This machine is known as the New High Arm Davis Vertical Feed Sewing Machine. The Factory for Davis was in Dayton Ohio. United States America. Interestingly there was a branch in Bourke Street, Melbourne, Victoria Australia.
This is an early walking foot style machine. The fabric is pushed through by a pronged foot. There are no Feed dogs. It does have a boat style shuttle and a spindle.
This is a close-up of the centre bed decal. Barely visible is the Eagle above the American Flag.
All the phots will enlarge if you click on them for great detail.
See some of the damage. Love the little pull out drawer
This poor machine has had a hard life. She must have sat in water for quite a while. The only thing left of the pullout drawer was the front and the wooden base was in five pieces. She restored remarkably well and of course there are not any Before photos! Rob has her sewing now despite her being siezed so he is happy.
I have been getting some sewing done. Lots and lots of sets of Flying geese units. so far I have made 60 sets of 4 with 60 more to go! I need to photograph them. They are taking quite a while to make. Having Fun though. The Migraines have Gone and I am happy.
Have a great Week all
Cheers Lynne and Rob
