Isaac Merritt Singer (1811-1875)
 

Toy Singer Sewing Machine
1957

"For the little dressmaker"
This British-made Singer Toy Sewing Machine was given as a Christmas present from a mother in Virginia to her daughter. As the Singer Company proclaimed in its advertising, "Little girls need not play 'make-believe' with this little Singer because it really and truly sews with a perfectly even stitch--just like mother's big machine. Imagine the fun in having for your very own a sewing machine with which you can actually make new clothes for dolly!"
