A person I know is writing a family memoir about a 1938 tailor shop on the Germany/Holland border. The tailor shop had a Singer. The writer asked me for details about what type of machine it might have been, visual details etc.

What would your best guess be as to model, decals or not, etc?

Black. Cast Iron. Treadle.
I would guess a 31-15, perhaps one of 15- class treadles.

By 1938 Singer would have also had the 201 available (built in Scotland in 1932 on) and it wasn't cheap.
German made treadles would have included Pfaff Gritzner and Anker. (and that one that starts with O that I can never remember, lol)
