Frister & Rossmann No.10


Very rare, World War One Era Transverse Shuttle Frister & Rossmann – The Model 10.

Book Feature – This actual sewing machine is featured in the book ‘The History Of Frister & Rossmann Sewing Machines‘ by Alex Askaroff. (page 114) You will receive a signed copy of the book with this machine.

This stunning Frister & Rossmann from 1916 was the first machine that the German company made using the Art Nouveau, Liberty styling. The no.10 is an extremely rare model today, made when few people (except the Germans) were buying anything made by them. This machine was styled without the ‘Made In Berlin’ badge that up until this point, the company proudly displayed on their machines. The company wanted to keep quiet as to where it was made in an effort to keep their international market alive, but by 1917 the UK agents for F&R machines moved over to the British made Vickers Sewing machines, making these models rarely seen outside of Germany.

This beautiful sewing machine made 107 years ago was meticulously restored by master craftsman Alex Askaroff, you can see a video of the restoration here:

The machine comes with lots of extras including beautiful case, key, instructions & paperwork, original F&R needles, thread, attachments and of course the signed book.

A fantastic addition to any collection.

Her name is Maggie, see one of the pictures below to find out how she got her name.
