1890 Davis Sewing Machine Catalogs on CD



The founder of the company, Job A. Davis, began the small scale manufacturing of a sewing machine around 1860 in New York City. In all likeliness, he may have manufactured a sewing machine similar to the New England or Common Sense chain-stitch sewing machines that were popular in the 1860s and early 1870s. This would explain the “Vertical Feed” mechanism used on later Davis machines.

Beginning in the late 1890s with the introduction of the models featuring feed dogs, most Davis made machines were ‘stenciled’ models manufactured and labeled for retail outlets, catalog houses, and mail order companies. Taking over from the Free, Goodrich, and National sewing machine companies, the Davis company supplied most Minnesota brand sewing machines sold by Sears Roebuck & Co. from 1900 through 1912.

This catalog recently sold on ebay for over one hundred dollars, this is your chance to own the 1890 Davis Sewing Machine catalog for only a fraction of the cost of the original! This is a wonderfully illustrated catalog showing vintage sewing machines from over 115 years ago! The founder of the company, Job A.
