TitleBy Royal Letters Patent. "The Unicum", (registered trade mark) Automatic Buttonhole Machine. Advantages : I. It is a model of simplicity, works with one thread only, and is not liable to get out of order. II. Being in every detail automatic, no skill whatever is required in working it. III. It cuts and swes a perfect pear-shaped buttonhole in every description of clothing material or leather, and of any size required, and is therefore suitable for all classes of tailoring establishments, costume and mantle makers, as well as for boot manufacturers. IV. Hundred or more buttonholes per hour, according to sizr, can be produced by an unskilled operator. V. The addition of the Final Bar (our latest patent) enables the work to be completed entirely by the machine. VI.
