Dietrich - The Harris No. 1

#809752, courtesy of Dan. This High Arm Transverse Shuttle machine with Dietrich decals is unusual in that it has the combination of front inspection plate on the shoulder and a low slung balance wheel. It was badged for the British seller, Harris. This gold logo uses the old style L.O.D. 'S' logo, but there is no writing around the outside of the badge. Another distinctive element is the small coat of arms towards the bottom of the badge is oval, not shield-shaped as Dietrich used on other versions of their logo.

By 1920 'Vesta' had taken over totally from 'Dietrich' as the company logo. For other Dietrich & Vesta logos see HERE. And here is Company History.
