1922 vintage condition good overall . The machine shows scattered wear and rust. This cast iron Singer Model 20 is in ok working shape. 7 spoke black spiral hand wheel with nickel plated rim and arrows and a wooden knob. The parts moves and the intact needle goes up and down. All mechanisms appear to be functioning. Black enamel, chrome plated and gold maker marks. 7" width x 7" tall x 3.5"wheel diameter. When the Singer 20 toy sewing machine was introduced in 1910 it was in a league of its own. Although the Singer 20 was of a simple chain stitch design requiring just 40 components, it was very well engineered with a cast iron body. Compared to other toy sewing machines of its era, and indeed since then until the present, it is far more like a miniature adult machine than a child’s toy.
