A Hundred Years Old This Year
A beautiful treadle, manufactured in 1913 by Bernhard Stoewer in Stettin, Germany (now Szczecin, Poland).
It has a lovely dainty look about it.
Even with the cover on it looks pretty.
When I bought it I emailed the Stoewer Museum and they confirmed that the serial number dated the machine to 1913.
But of course, I don't love it just because it's a delight to look at, but also because it runs like a train.
A big welcome to Meg, the first new follower for the New Year!
