DATING MUNDLOS KLASSE 88
Vibrating Shuttle - Schwingschiff
note: This page is under construction. I don't know when this model entered in production and when ended, new evidences may change the following information.
From 1913 To 1931
In 1913 for the 50th anniversary of the company a new logo was made.
A peculiarity of Mundlos vibrating shuttle models was the lever to eject the shuttle, located on the right side under the bobbin winder. This feature appears to be present on machines Type 88 G, long bed style, but no on machines Type 88.
At one point the sewing machines were renamed "Mundlos" (maybe in 1924) and the round badge that used to be on the machine bed was relocated on the pillar's inspection plate and I still research the dates.
From 1931 To 1942 c.
In 1931 the company launched a new serie of sewing machines and a new logo's style was made it.
1938 75th Anniversary
This model has a long bed similar to the Germans "Gritzner" and "Frister & Rossmann" company and I presume those sewing machines were made around 1929.
1940. With the beginning of World War II, the firm was also compulsorily responsible for armament production in accordance with its prerequisites as a supplier of parts from the metal and wood processing industry.
On January 16, 1945, in the bomb attack by American and British bombers, the largest parts of the factory and the company-owned museum were destroyed. The youngest son of the company founder, Rudolf Mundlos, had to lead the dismantling and packing of the space-filling machine tools for transport as reparation services to the Soviet Union. Thus the work of Mundlos, a pioneer and creator of the German sewing machine industry, came to an end.
