Cylinder or Sock
This cylinder or sock knitting machine is, I believe, made by "The Imperia Hoisery Manufacuring Co." of London, England and dates to around 1910.
I can't find any cracks or chips to the cast iron body, cranks or clamps and it has retained much of its' original black japanning, unfortunately, most of the gilt decoration has worn away.
The exposed metal work has lost some of its' plated finish in places and there are signs of surface rust in places too. There are also the usual marks, scratches and scuffs that you would expect to an item of this age and use.The drum rotates and the needles move up and down in a wave motion and the row counter moves as it should. There are 84 needles, four of which are missing.
There is a crack to the wooden handle
The machine has its' yard stand and rods, work hook, weights and setter up(?).
There is no work buckle or bobbin.
