Hello!

Among a lot of presser feet I bought for my Singers, I found these two...

I know one is a cording foot (it has a slot underneath) and the other a gathering foot with a slot but the attachement method is odd.
Does anyone know what company / brand it corresponds to?

I'm not positive, but it sure looks like my Junker & Ruh Model R. I haven't been able to find much information about my particular model. I started a thread http://www.victoriansweatshop.com/post/what-can-you-tell-me-about-junker-ruh-model-r-8441634?pid=1295237547 and need to add to it as my brother was able to fix the stop motion flange bushing.

Too bad you are in France. I only have the one foot for it. Additionally, no means to "run" as in no hand crank, no treadle base and no motor.

Oh well, it does sew.

Thanks for the info Janey. What seems odd is that I found another listing with feet with that sort of odd attachment among Singer presser feet... Maybe Junker and Ruh made their way into the French households before Singer flooded the market?

It is not unusual to find feet for different machines together. I got a machine that had four different types of feet. Fortunately, one of the four types fit the machine that I bought.

I don't know, but perhaps there are other European machines that take that type of feet.

That is possible... Yet, when dealing with pre World War II sewing machines it is very hard to find the real maker of sewing machines (except for Singer and New Home): most German-made machines were badged with an American-sounding name, and local dealers often put their names on the machines. For instance, my mum owns a lovely (yet temperamental) "Simplex" VS treadle but on closer inspection it looks like a National SM (I'll take pictures next time I go visit) 
All this to say that sewing machine cabinet drawers are a world of their own! LOL
