The black enamel paint is also in very good condition, nice and shiny black with some wear on the bed and edge on the sewing side, not surprising after 116 years. Front and side plates in excellent condition as are the slide plates.
There is some wear on the handwheel. Comes with two extra bobbins and the bullet shuttle is in the machine.
This is a lovely true antique machine that still sews beautifully! Most our items are antique or vintage and have typical minor wear expected of an item from that period.
