This 1899 Singer 27 sewing machine is not working, but like all antique Singer sewing machines would most likely sew again after a tune up. The machine features a vibrating shuttle mechanism for the bottom thread and a shuttle winder mounted low on the pillar. The decals are popularly called the Tiffany set and are original to the machine. Accessories are readily available. The machine comes with a few extra parts. 

The cabinet is a beautiful 7-drawer restored Singer cabinet, likely original to this machine. The floral motifs on the drawers are in excellent condition. The iron and oak are in very good condition, including the wooden pitman arm. The treadle works well but may need adjustment to run the machine.

This is an uncommon opportunity to own a restorable 19th century Singer sewing machine in its original 7 drawer refinished cabinet. 

Overall Dimensions:
