No. 127/84  (please see all photos)

Maker - Frister & Rossman

Model - Class 48

Serial Number - 573724¤321724

Circa - 1888

Construction -  Cast Iron/Wooden Casing (possibly Mahogany/Burr Walnut and Inlaid Woods) the base of the machine is also inlaid with a ruler

Country of Origin - Germany

Dimensions - 18.5" by 10.25" (11.25" in height)

Weight - 15 Kilogram (unpackaged)

Condition - Excellent Used Condition, though the Rose design decals are quite rubbed, this said they are unusual to those usually found on Frister & Rossmann machines of this period. The Plating on the wheel has also been well rubbed through use, overall this is a well used and cared for machine that is over 130 years old.

Other Interesting Points - This particular model was sold by the Agent S. Loewe, 49 Fore Street, London (plaque to base of arm) and features a porcelain crank handle, solid brass carrying handle, Frister & Rossman Monogram lock plate, dated (1888) silver plate dated name plaque to top of cabinet - R. Whitaker, whom I guessed had a particular Good Christmas in 1888 recieving this beauty!
