Sewing Machine Table w/Black Walnut Top and Eldridge Base
16" h x 48" l x 25" black walnut console or sofa table with rough edge on an antique Eldredge sewing machine base.
Sliced diagonally from the log - Black walnut generally is one of the most enjoyed American hardwoods for its fine-yet-open grain, unique patterns, and bold dark color. Walnut is great to cut, shape and sand, and the wood takes on an amazing look with a clear finish.
Barnabas Eldredge was an industrialist connected with the Ames Manufacturing Company of Chicopee, Massachusetts, a firearms manufacturer that also produced sewing machines with Eldredge. Ames sold off its sewing machine dyes and equipment to Eldredge, who went to Chicago. There he joined forces with the existing June Manufacturing Company, founded in 1879 by F. T. June; June Manufacturing already produced the "Jennie June" model. The "Jennie June" was eventually replaced by a superior model designed by Eldredge. Eldredge took over the company in 1890 on the death of June, renaming it National Sewing Machine.
Eldredge led the company until his death in 1911.
