Vintage Sewing Machine - Chiyoda

Theres a sewing machine in my vintage items collection too. This is a fully working, Chiyoda sewing machine. This brand is relatively uncommon (Singer is the most common and popular brand back then), but from what I know, it is a Japanese company which used to produce sewing machines back in the early part of the 1900s. This set used to be a fully manual and mechanical sewing machine which does not require electricity. However, with the advancement in technologies, it was later modified with an addition of an electric motor which made sewing much easier.
