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!
