Item Details


  • Type: Manual
  • Brand: Hengstenberg
  • Country/Region of Manufacture: Germany

Rare fiddle base Hengstenberg sewing machine made in Bielefeld Germany at the end of the 19th C.
Designed By Hugo Hengstenberg and distributed by J.Silberg of Hamburg. This one in particular is rare as it has the fiddle base
Hengstenbergs' machines quickly got a glowing reputation being made to such high standards, even for Germany.
This is a beautifully made machine with expensive detail like the mother of pearl floral motif on the machine bed and the geometric grecian style decor being carried by the gilt transfer decals and in detailed marquetry work on the casings.  There is some enamel worn on this machine and some of the gilt metal or gold leaf decoration has worn away, which shows it has been well used over the years.
Hengstenbergs are highly sought after by collectors and this one is in working condition.
There are a few spares included, see final pic.

As this has been given to us the proceeds will go to Birmingham Dogs Home.

P&P reflects the weight.  I am open to sensible offers.

Collection is available from either B42 RU or DY4 0EF
