Gardner 1871 Sewing Machine

Gardner Front
Rob’s Christmas/Birthday present.  Isn’t it gorgeous. Love the painted Roses on the bed. Would you believe he acquired the Manual over 10 years ago and now he finally has the machine that goes with the manual!
Gardner Sewing Machine Company was established in Hamilton, Ontario Canada in 1871 and went out of business in 1886.
This machine is called the Improved Gardner and is their first model.
All the photos can be enlarged for a closeup view.
