Heavy Duty Electric Sewing Machine. Sew Mor Model 990 Automatic Zig Zag. Serial numbers underneath: J-A39 99 2950.
Our sewing machine repair consultant worked for Singer for YEARS. He verified that this is a heavy duty / industrial grade machine, good for sewing denim, leather, etc for personal projects or as a cottage industry (not in industrial amounts). He said that in the sewing world, this machine is called a "clone" of the Singer 15 machine.
At the end of WWII the US government gave the Japanese the blueprints to the Singer 15 sewing machine to help rebuild Japan's economy (and Singer was no longer making them). And the benefit is that these clones have upgrades from the original Singer machines - they run smoother and have extra features like reverse stitch, zig zag, an easy switch to raise and lower the feed dogs, as well as the chrome hand wheel instead of the painted ones that seem to get chipped. They are work-horses, and often quite beautiful like this one! You're sure to love her.A beautiful sewing machine in turquoise and pastel blue with shiny chrome details.
