Advertising Broadside for the Aiken Knitting Machine Co.
by [Aiken Knitting Machine Co.].
This broadside is 16½x10¼", and is tipped into an archival rag mat. Very slight aging, though delicate this ad is in wonderful condition; near fine to fine. The Aiken Knitting Machine Co was located in New York City with their factory in Franklin, N.H. The printed images show their various types of knitting machines, and winder for spooling yarn, with the direction to "Please Put Up In Your Office". The Aiken family moved to New Hampshire in 1938, and were fairly well known industrialists and inventors. In May 1855 Jonas B. Aiken secured a patent (Patent 12933) for a knitting machine. Their machines appeared to get a lot of good press in the 1860s, and they seemed to have established a very respectable business. (Inventory #: 106353)
