The Face Plate is the piece of metal that covers the Needle Bar and Presser Foot Rods on the sewing machine. It sometimes is just that, a metal cover and other times it will contain the tensioner like on the Model 15 Singers. The Face Plate can be chrome/nickel plated or painted depending on the manufacturer and will usually have beautiful designs engraved often mimicking the Decals of the machine.
