Singer Restoration Saturday - Dollie Progress and a Mystery Unearthed
Have not made a lot of progress with Dollie the past week -- distracted by the new car lol. I have applied a couple of coats of paste wax on her to get her ready for her closeup. If you enlarge the image you can see the initials "D.E.T." scratched into the surface. I would blame that on my sister, Denise, but her middle initial is 'A'. And Dollie, was Dolly Franklyn Dunn Henderson, so that's not it. I believe we have a new family mystery!
Dollie - freshly shined up
The finish is even worse than I remembered. Maybe someday I will want to completely redo it; but for now, I will concentrate on finishing the display table. It needs to be flipped over so a coat of polyurethane can be put on the legs on the legs.
I will focus next week on getting it all together! Larry
