I am back at the resort property that uses typewriters for decoration. Other themes here include: ski boots, old telephones, televisions, radios, books and sewing machine tables. Happy Thanksgiving! (mbnov)

@fgtech That looks almost exactly like my great-grandmother’s sewing machine! Except it doesn’t have the big Singer and either it was dark wood/stain or has decades of crud on it ;-)

@smokey The treadle-style appliance was quite high-tech back in the day, I guess. Here is a view that shows the whole machine.

@smokey I suspect many of these decorative accents were acquired via estate sales.

@fgtech Yes, I imagine so—there was at least one more different style treadle machine in my grandparents’ garage when we cleaned it out.

That’s a gorgeous one.
