My MIL moved into a condo in a retirement community recently and because she didn't have a lot of room, she gave me her treadle sewing machine. It's beautiful and in beautiful condition. However, I'm having a very hard time finding ANY information on it. It's got the name Cumberland on the sewing machine but no other names or name plates.

The only thing my husband was able to find was a needle model list that lists the Cumberland under the Davis company. It's also very, very, very similar to the Missouri Model "C" which was sold by Sears in the early 1900's. However, after searching and searching the internet, we've had zero luck finding anything. Oh well, we'll keep trying.
