National Factory c. 1890

The names on the following machines are examples of the models offered. National probably produced more badged names than any other company. In particular, identification is sometimes difficult because many different machines across the range were sold under the Eldredge name (after Barnabas Eldredge, founder of National). The following pages attempt to identify the various features of the differently styled models produced by National.

Further details may be found in NeedleBar's Picture Library.

If you have examples not featured or other information please write to the NeedleBar Forum and send pictures to Claire at nbforum@btinternet.com
