Item has been SOLD.....Very Early Washing machine 1861 Brooklyn NY

This well made model is complete and works as the inventor, Mr S T McDougall intended it to work. The heavy hand-crank turns the crankshaft which lifts "frames" which have rows of balls revolving on them. All the balls turn and the frames raise and lower as the upper crankshaft dictates.

4 different positions are on the crankshaft, allowing independent lowering of the "frames".
