White rotary serial number 17X705X


Thomas White

White Sewing Machine Co.
Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A.

This company started manufacturing sewing machines in 1876


White machines rotate in the opposite direction to Singers, and I found it difficult to get used to.

Automatic lift cabinet was made in Australia by Anthony Hordern Cabinetmakers, of Brickfield Hill in Sydney


The serial numbers are most unusual on these machines, this one definitely reads 17 X 705 X.
I believe this strange combination signifies the special casting design, with inbuilt decoration,

Machine roughly dated 1935.
