Willcox and Gibbs Decals
I took a few pictures of the Willcox and Gibbs Automatic this morning so I have a record of how it looks before the clean up. For the true authentic touch, I haven't even wiped off the dust. Here is a close up of the decals on the base, which are just so pretty and in such good condition.
Hidden below the needleplate is the serial number. I submitted a photo of this machine to the Needlebar website a while ago, and was delighted to be told that this serial number dates the machine back to 1888.
I am being very strict with myself and not touching it until I have finished The Quilt, which I hope will be next week...
