This is a portable chain stitch machine with walking foot (ie the fabric is advanced from above, without feed dogs underneath).

Model A has the earlier, all in one presser foot leg.

Model B has the later, two piece presser foot and an engraved face plate

The company had a share capital of £70,000 divided into 1,400,000 ordinary shares of 1/- each.
