yeah - 1894 - so chuffed!
It is pretty battered and has obviously been used well. I am in the process or cleaning and re-oiling it. I have found a wonderful lady on Youtube who collects and uses old machines to make patchwork quilts and she has a really good guide on how to take everything to bits and clean it.
I have done all the front needle and tension areas - thank goodness there is a shuttle in it - no idea where I would get one if it had been missing.
Can't wait until I can actually sew something with it1
