    Question Vintage "Home Queen" sewing machine

    My grandmother passed away a few years ago, and we came across a Vintage "Home Queen" sewing machine.
    I tried to do some internet research, but little information I could find. I went to a few antique dealers, and didn't have any answers. They just told me it was a "Rare item"

    Does anyone have any input or knowledge of this type?

    Thanks....

    Hi and thanks for writing. This is a "private label" Sears product. Apparently major retailers at the turn of last century had relationships with established sewing machine manufacturers who would supply standard models but with the name of choice substituted for the normal brand name. The "Home Queen" was a badged version of National's Model Vindex B Top Tension. Sears' main competitor, Montgomery Ward, carried the exact same model under the "Brunswick" label. Sears sold this model from about the late 1890s through early 1900s. For more information on antique private label sewing machines, please click here.
