Hi again,

The mysteries continue. This looks like a 50s model, but maybe I am being confused as it is a clean as a whistle & I am wondering if it was ever used.

Serial #1712808

Bebarfald were an AU retailer of electrical & household goods who imported machines & rebadged them. Mostly from English Vickers.

Any ideas to the date of manufacture? It's a straight stitch & looks v. similar to a Singer 201K.

Thanks in advance.

I would tend to agree that it is probably from the 1950s.  I found a manual for a Husqvarna CB-N machine that has the "12" on the badge below the stitch length regulator like this machine.  http://sintheta.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Husqvarna%20CB-N%20Manual%20English.pdf

They also imported Nationals from the US. The OP's machine is REALLY nice!

If you're on FB a good place to ask about this machine may be this page - Sew What Maryborough - Traveling Sewing Machine Museum.  Wayne and Judy McKail are HUGE collectors and are very knowledgeable of Australian sewing machine history.

Thanks for the responses, you lot are brilliant. I'll seek out Sew What Maryborough - good to know I'm on the right track. I'll post about my next mystery machine which is driving me bonkers in an hour or so.
