A Willcox and Gibbs - American made machine, s/n A373686. 1884.
This is just a small sample of my sewing machines, the older more interesting ones which are a different shape to the more modern styling. I actually have about 30 hand machines, 9 treadles and a selection of vintage electric machines, about 60 altogether.
I would love to know what Grace thought of the sewing machine when it became available - I suppose she could have been about 50 years of age when she saw one for the first time.
