A beautiful example of an early Singer treadle (sewing) machine.
A hinged wooden flap covers machine and opens out to provide a layout surface for working. Another hinged wooden piece folds back to allow the sewing machine to fold upright. The sewing machine rests on the flap. The machine is painted in a floral pattern.
There are 3 apothecary drawers each side (6 drawers in total). A wrought iron base has the "Singer" name incorporated.
