Jones & Co labelled their sewing machines for various retailers so they appear under a number of different names. These names may appear as decals on the arm, pillar or on the bed of the machine. Sometimes the retailers name was stamped on the slide plate or inspection cover and some retailers would add their own plaque to the machine. A small number of retailers had sewing machines produced with completely different decals to the standard Jones decal sets.

The most extensively labelled machine was the Jones Family C. S. but the Medium C. S., Jones Hand & the Spool machine were all also sold as labelled machines. The following is a list of names under which Jones sewing machines are known to be sold and where possible we have indicated a date. This list is a work in progress and we are always interested in recieving details of other names under which Jones machines appeared.

With the Cylinderical Shuttle range the easiest way to confirm if your labelled machine is a Jones C.S. machine is to look for the large screw head on top of the arm between the two spool pins.
