Early Trade Card
The American Sewing Machine Company
The company was founded Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1869 as the American Buttonhole, Overseaming and Sewing Machine Company - producing a machine that was capable of performing those functions.
In 1874 began producing a vibrating shuttle machine that was unusual in that it utilized a round bobbin; machine was called the New American. The Company name was shortened to the American Sewing Machine Company.
The company introduced a new model sewing machine in the mid to late 1880s - the Model 7 pictured on the cards included here - but was out of business by the turn of the century.
