For this listing, I am acting as a Trading Assistant, and offering the item on behalf of a third party. This is part of an estate that is being liquidated.
Offered here is a vintage Singer sewing machine, Model 28K. Based on researching the serial number (F4952859), I have determined that this machine was manufactured in 1914 at the Kilbowie facility in Clydebank Scotland. The machine was likely manufactured between January & June of that year.
The 28K is a manual crank machine, and includes a locking wooden case (key included), as well as a number of other accessories for the machine. The user’s manual for the 28K is available here. This machine also includes a velvet lined tin box filled with various accessories for different stitches, hems and applications.
The machine appears in excellent condition, given the fact that it is around 100 years old. The finish is in good condition, as well as the ornate victorian gold design. While I have not actually tested this machine (I don’t know the FIRST thing about sewing!), the machine seems to function very smoothly.
The wooden case lifts off of the machine, and is in good condition given its age. The base has a small compartment under the crank, with a slide off top. The machine is hinged to the base, and when lifted, is stamped in gold “Made In Great Britain”.
If you love antiques, and you love sewing machines, this one is for you! It has form AND function!
This machine will ship in 2 separate boxes: 1 for the machine and base, the other for the top of the case. All pieces will be carefully wrapped and packaged to avoid damage during transit. Because of the weight of this machine, shipping rates will likely be high, but they will also include insurance.
Please contact me with any questions you may have about this machine, and I will do my best to answer them for you.
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS (OTHER THAN CANADA) PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR SHIPPING RATES TO YOUR COUNTRY PRIOR TO PLACING A offer!

This is very dear to me… The response system is method by which buyers can rate a seller. I have worked hard over the years to establish myself as a trustworthy buyer and seller.
Half of your obligation in this transaction is to make prompt payment to me. Once that is done, I leave positive response for you. If you don’t make payment, a complaint is filed with , and NO response is left for you. Regrettably, has changed their response system, prohibiting sellers from leaving negative response for non-paying buyers. may coddle you, but I won’t. feels that my attitude towards non-paying buyers is too aggressive. Too bad.
