I just got a new vintage viking sewing machine in red so I put together a collage of my colorful collection. Included in the photo are my Singer 66 Red-eye, a green Japan made Super-DeLux by Revere (the copper bottom pan company), a pink Kenmore 352, my turquoise and chrome Morse 4400, one of my four Singer 500a Rocketeer machines, and the new Viking 6570. Not shown is my white modern Bernina 170, the black Singer featherweight, and the Jukie 654DE Serger and the Babylock Coverstitch machine. Honestly, I think my collection is complete, except for the mint green Japan Dressmaker machine for $20 that's currently on a local Craigslist. I'd get it too if it weren't missing the cams.

Very cool! That Morse is very very nice BLUE!
Mine are black... FWs both black, Kenmore 27 is also black with red decals.
Which one is your favorite to sew with?

Look at all those pretty babies! The turquoise revere is totally cool. Wah I don't have a red eye , my 66 is a plain jane. 4 rockateers is rubbing it in for those of us who haven't found the right one yet. Lol! When the vintage sewing machine bug happens, it brings on a lot of new "old" sewing machine collecting. I am really hooked on the oldsters-love sewing on them.

Mine are all black singer straight stitchers, a crinkle kenmore rotary, and a pinkish 401A singer. None are anything unusual though the 201 and 401 are in very nice condition in a queen ann cabinet and a blonde cabinet each with the matching stools. I really like sewing in a cabinet set up and can't lift them to use so let's say I have a lot of odd lamp and utility tables that are sm cabinets here and there in the house.

I have such a love-affair w/ that Morse! I bought one with fewer stitches that only does a straight-stitch...no zig-zag due to a cracked cam-stack. I keep looking for another one to harvest that part! Aren't they just beautiful!!!! I have sewn on one like yours and they really are great fun!

That red machine is great..nice color pop to the collection! and your red eye decals look to be in great shape!

I have the Morse 4300, same as yours. I also have a Brother Super Streamliner in a bright turquoise and cream...think '57 chevy...a Pink Atlas(faded to peach, but still pretty) and a rose colored Morse MZZ.
My Morse 4400 is the very pale grey and the Morse Super Dial is the basic Morse blue with cream..I'm still looking for the raspberry and cream color combo in that one.

This made me realize that I need better pictures of my machines...
Here is the turquoise brother

The morse is my favorite machine to sew on. The cam stack has a nasty crack down the middle, but it still works with all the stitches. I know it's going to die some day, so I want to get all the use from it that I can. It sews super fast and makes beautiful stitches. The blue and chrome combo is my favorite. However, now that I've seen your pink morse, I think I'm in love again.

Ok, these are roughly in order (and don't include my New Home chainstitcher or the Singer 12, neither of which has been cleaned yet and put back into operation. But of the ones ready to use since establishing a sewing space in the house there are, in approximate birth order:

Row 1. 1887 Singer 27-1, 1889 Singer Improved Family (the earliest version of the Singer 15), 1908 Singer 27-3

Row 2. 1909 Singer 66, 1925 Singer 99, 1940 Singer 201K

Row 3. 1950s Singer 301A, 1960s New Home 354, 1960s Brother
