I nurse unloved vintage Berninas back to health and then just cannot bring myself to part with any of them... 807, 830, 840, 530-2, 930, 910, and a modded 717 in a Singer treadle base.

I don't think thats a Singer ...... I thinks its a german model, perhaps a Wertheim.

So maybe an early 12 or 13?

I like acanthus leaves :)

I thought 12 when I saw it but I’m fuzzier on the really old models.

I could be completely wrong - it's very hard to tell when you can't see anything m ore useful, it's hard to be sure even of the base plate shape. Maybe someone in Scotland can buy it and take better pictures  :)
