Saxonia - 'Triumph'

Courtesy of Claire Sherwell. The 'Saxonia'- type handcrank machine has several defining characteristics. It is very small (i.e. 1/2 or Featherweight-sized), it has a crank handle fixed to a large, direct-drive balance wheel, the lower part of which is below the level of the bed of the machine. The wooden bases of these machines have a cut-out to accommodate this large wheel. This kind of machine was made by many makers over a very long period of time, and there are both fiddle- and rectangular-based versions. Other Saxonias.
