Vesta B - Later

#1649971. This machine provides the missing link between the narrow bodied Vesta B and the 'Cylinder Shuttle' sewing machine it evolved into. This is a small Transverse Shuttle machine with tension on the faceplate. The manual states New Model and shows pictures of Saxonias as well as this model with regular hand crank. Both models now take 15x1 needles and Dietrich's special hybrid shuttle, the Cylinder Shuttle. Note the pincushion on the accessories lid and the metal rim to the treadle belt hole.

The Dietrich logo was used until the company founder, Leopold Oscar Dietrich, died in 1904. However, the name Vesta was originally registered c1895. By 1920 'Vesta' had taken over totally from 'Dietrich' as the company logo.
