Steel, cast iron, wood, in very good working condition.

Vesta sewing machine after a design by L. O. Dietrich, made in Altenburg Germany, with the serial number 1696551 and control marks b 3.

From 1880 on wards there were sewing machines with the brand name Vesta in Altenburg and up to 1900 they were an outright copy of the Singer sewing machines.
The quality was so good that 5 year warranties were already given on the machines.
The factory was closed mid 1945/46 by the Russians because of involvement with the manufacture of arms for WW II.

From 1900 onwards the founder, L.O. Dietrich designed sewing machines himself with his 2 friends. These had the same indestructible quality.
The Vesta was known for its snakeskin pattern on the normally smooth chrome-plated parts, the machine in this lot has a solid snakeskin pattern on the chromed machine parts.

The machine has a black high-gloss lacquer with gold-coloured decorations with red roses, which are a little worn on the work surface and the name Vesta has disappeared from the back.
The machine is complete with lid and the correct key and is in used but very good, undamaged and working condition and is suitable for mounting onto a piece of sewing machine furniture with a step / string construction.

The photos are part of the description.

The lot will be well packed and sent by registered and insured mail.

    Can you indicate what the problem is?
    The tape recorder was checked before I offered it and worked.
    Both mechanically and electrically and towards the amplifier.
    He was well packaged, but possibly something went wrong with transport?

    With kind regards Ben Pont
