Little mother  
Greetings, I am a collector & restorer of Little Mother toy sewing machines. I can repaint, machine missing or damaged parts and nickel plate rusted components. In my search for info on the machine, I have not been able to find the color combination of the 2-tone model. I have the 2 reds, maroon and the blue. Can you tell me what color the 2-tone is?  I have found that there is really no consistency in color even in the common colors through out the manufacturing years. I've attached a photo of a machine I restored that was so damaged that it was sold for parts only. Thank you for your time and have a Blessed day. Bob Benedict

Hello Bob,

I regret that I cannot be of assistance to you with regard to color combination for the 2-tone machine.
I would like to keep your information handy though so that I may pass it along when a query comes in about restoration.

Would you be so kind as to provide me with your email address?

Thank you.

I have been a collector of antique sewing tools and thimbles for over 30 years. I am also a dealer in this field and sell on eBay under the name -- serengeti2. I am NOT, and I repeat NOT an expert on antique or vintage domestic household sewing machines used for everyday home sewing. I can offer help when it comes to Toy or miniature collectible sewing machines ONLY.
