Date your Jones Sewing Machine

 

Please see the below table to date your Jones Machine. From Sewing Machines we have had with manuals (from which you can get a date) to data collected via the  Internet here is a very rough guide you can use to estimate the age of your Jones Sewing  Machine.

 

Jones originally in or around 1880 started with a simply numeric list of serial numbers for all their machines. Whilst they continued this one numeric list it is possible to approximately date a machine. Jones in their wisdom started several different numeric and alpha-numeric serial number runs after 1935. *After that date it is impossible to accurately date machines.  

 

If anyone has an original manual with their machine, please Contact Us and we will add your data to the table.

See photo which shows where date is shown, 9/38 equates to September 1938.

** I realise this machine is slightly out of sync. I can only assume its a machine found in the factory at a later date and issued with a newly printed manual
