This 1948 Pfaff 30/31 is well used and loved, and sews a perfect stitch! The paint is distressed, but the machine is in very good condition.

The cabinet features a push button opener, and has inside three swing out drawers and pins on top for spools of thread. The door is the support for the lid making a 5 foot long table when opened. Please do not open the lid without putting the door under it for support. 

It sews great - there is a sample included to show it stitching away at different lengths. As with all sewing machines we sell, we recommend taking the machine to a shop for a good tune-up to run the best it can!  

Dimensions (with table closed):

30" High x 22.5" Wide x 16.5” Deep
