Vintage Frister & Rossmann Hand Operated Sewing Machine





























Description

 

Vintage Frister & Rossmann Hand Operated Sewing Machine
 
Frister & Rossmann was established in 1864 close to Berlin.  In the 1880's the Company was awarded Medals at various International Exhibitions including Sydney, Crystal Palace, Amsterdam , London, Edinburgh, Adalaide, Melbourne, and Berlin.  Frister & Rossmann became Germanys largest sewing machine manufacturer a position it held until 1902.  In 1925 the Company was taken over by Gritzner who continued to produce machines under the Frister and Rossmann name. 
 
The Company started exporting sewing machines to England circa 1870 appointing an Agent in London to act as Wholesaler.  However it wasn't until Hermann Loog took over the Agency from I. Nasch in 1876 that sales started to improve.  Loog remained the Companys Agent until c1896, he was replaced by S. Loewe c1896 to 1901, followed by W. Pierssene 1901 to 1914 and finally O. Quitmann c1920 onwards.  In addition to these Agents Frister and Rossmann sewing machines were also sold by "leading Drapers and Stores", one such store was Harrods.
 
This machine dates from around 1897.  There is an additional slide plate and the arm has changed.  The corners of the bed are sharp not rounded as with later machines and there are two small notches in the end of the bed to accomodate a treadle belt. The bed is decorated with a Mother of Pearl inlaid design.  The machine has a 'spoon' bobbin winder.  There is an inlaid ruler in the base. The Agent was W. Pierssene.
 
As you can see from the photos thier are a number of parts and tools along with the original Frister & Rossmann's instruction booklet. I would also suggest a full service, as even thought this is a working machine, it has been in staorage for some time.
 
Delivery: I advertise as local pick-up but appreciate that not all of you live close enough to collect, so if it helps, I can arrange for cheap local delivery (please ask for a quote).

Should your require transport further afield, I use a professional furniture courier to move stuff for me, he's called Bob Hinson and can be contacted on 07976 810665 I am very happy to recommend him.…If you mention that Shane has recommended you he will provide a good price (often less than the fuel you would use to get here yourselves!).

You can of course use any number of alternatives such as Anyvan, Shiply, Parcel2go or Parcelmonkey all of whom can provide a cheaper but less personal service. Very simple to use and many of my customers advise that they provide a good service. Please note that if you wanted me to wrap for collection there would be a small cost for materials (cardboard, bubble wrap, tape etc).
 
I can of course work with a courier of your own as well.
 
We have an ever fluctuating stock base of good quality affordable furniture, so please view our other items for sale!
 
Items can of course be viewed prior to purchase, please call Shane 07810 562891 to arrange.
 
Any other questions please mail me.
