Details

Harris was a London based sewing machine distributor to retailers. They didn't produce any sewing machines they just 'badged' machines made by many other makers with the Harris name. The company was founded in the 1870's and continued in the sewing machine business until at least 1960. It is said that the current incarnation of the Harris company is Mothercare, how bizarre. 1920's Harris No.5 is one of the most amazing machines that I have ever seen, it's stunning, with all its embossed metalwork! This one also has a lot of accessories in the machines storage box. Annoyingly the only thing that lets this machine down is its wooden case, that no longer locks and has external damage but as it's so beautiful I don't think it should be inside a case, let it shine haha, silver lining!! This fault it reflected in the very cheap price for this item. Item Grade B
