During its heyday the White Sewing Machine Company produced numerous models but this page is dedicated to just a few of the early vibrating shuttle models A unique characterictic of all White VS machines is that the shuttles have a central pin which fits through the hollow tubular shaft of the bobbins.
When buying any White VS machine it is essential to ensure it has both its shuttle and bobbin, as it would be virtually impossible to find replacements.
Like many other American manufacturers the company soon opened offices in London to manage its export sales to Europe.
By 1880 its European Office had moved to 19 Queen Victoria Street, London, where it stayed for around 10 years before moving again to 48 Holborn Viaduct.
The White ‘Peerless’ sewing machine was the most popular early model produced by the White Sewing Machine Company with many variations being produced over several years.
