Comments From the Internet:
This is a very early Model 24, called "The Automatic". The decals here are the hand painted "cornflower" design. This machine dates from the turn of the century. This is the simplest form of sewing machine ; it has neither shuttle nor bobbin, no tensions to adjust and the machine is ready for stitching when the needle is threaded. It makes the single-thread chain stitch. It has many points of preference that are obvious when it is compared with similar machines of other makes.
