Any old sewing machine experts here who recognize this badge?

My younger DD was at a swap meet this weekend, and saw an old  
curved-arm machine with that badge.

Just curious, I am NOT adding to my collection... ;-D

What a huge motor!  It must have been an industrial machine.

Motors used to be big.  That's probably a 1/10th horsepower motor,
something like that.  
There's a video a very similar machien here:

 appears not to have sound, too bad, it would neat to hear it run.

Try a different browser, it had sound when I loaded it.

The motor on the one my DD saw was mounted differently, and it did  
not have a light.  I suspect there were some modifications to these  
old machines as electricity became available around the  
country/world.
