The German company that made Vesta was called LOD, short for L.O. Dietrich, and was one of the oldest German sewing machine companies.

The Vesta mark went onto their machines in the late Victorian period and lasted up until the Second World War when the company became involved in arms manufacture. The factory was finally closed by the Russians around 1946.

A great illustration of the mighty German factory, right there inside the tin!

An amazing addition to any collection.

3/4 SIZE.

The machine is small and compact but very capable and perfect for many types of tailoring needs. Superb German engineering.

The name Vesta comes from the Roman goddess of fire and the hearth.
