This old catalogue page includes an extensive description and price listing for an elaborately designed seven-drawer Goldsmith sewing machine. Also included on the page is an image of the open sewing machine with the leaf extended to the left, forming an extension table, and an image of the closed sewing machine. A complete set of solid steel polished and nickel-plated attachments were given free with the purchase of the sewing machine. That set of attachments is shown on the extended leaf of the open sewing machine. This page is from the Universal Home Furnishers catalogue published by the Spiegel May Stern Co. in 1908. Here are black and white clip art versions of the images from the page. Click on images to enlarge.

So much that you have shown us lately is a walk down memory lane for me. When I was little (pre-school) my grandmother let me sew to my hearts content – it didn’t matter that there wasn’t any thread in the needle – I was just so fascinated with the treadle. Love these images – thanks

It’s wonderful that your grandmother let you sew to your heart’s content! Did you eventually get to sew with thread in the needle? 🙂
thank you for the lovely collection of vintage sewing items. I’ve shared the link to your page at my blog. I have begun a new page recounting the stories of each vintage sewing machine that has found me. I invite you to read along as the page grows day by day. It is here:https://atquiltersquarters.blogspot.com/p/vintage-and-antique-sewing-machines.html
Be well, all.

Thanks for the the chance to to take a look back into the past loved it. The sewing machine is just like the one my Grandmother had and I learned to sew on.
I have my grandmother’s treadle Singer. Wish I still had box of attachments but were lost in a move.
I have an old electric in wooded case but wiring looks iffy to plug in. Can’t find out how to require it and no one here local will do it for me.
Julie J says
What a wonderful antique treasure you have in your Grandmother’s treadle Singer! I’m sorry to hear the box of attachments was lost in a move.
Hopefully you’ll one day find someone to replace the cord on your old electric.

I’m looking for a belt for the 1930 Goldsmith’s treadle machine that I purchased for my mother. Any help you can give me or point me in the right direction would be appreciated. Thank you for your time and any help you can give me.
