This classic piece would make a beautiful addition to either a modern or traditional home.
I don’t know the exact age of this item but believe it is probably from the 1920’s – may be even a little earlier.
In 1859 the Jones brothers William and John established the Jones Sewing Machine Co. Ltd.in Audenshaw near Manchester. In 1869 William opened the largest factory in England. The Brother Group of Japan are still producing sewing machines at the old Jones factory.
This solid, sturdy piece of furniture has an elegant cast iron base.
iron foot treadle, which originally existed to operate a sewing machine, is missing.
However, this does not detract from the value of this item as a decorative piece.
The wooden table top has an attractive patina and four useful small drawers – each with its original brass knob.
There is a hinged door
which opens to reveal a cavity for a sewing machine (which is not included in this sale.)
There is also a narrow storage compartment across the front of the table.
The cast iron legs on the table’s base still retain their original small wheels.
Apart from some missing small pieces of wood veneer on the front left hand corner this item is in very good original unrestored antique condition.
