A sewing machine that I presume being from the 19th century or early 20th century. This ambience and much more can be found at the Apladalen’s park in the city of Värnamo. There are some houses there that belong to the “Hembyg” local association. Here is a short definition of “Hembygd” association:

“Sweden’s local heritage movement is sustained by almost half a million people working on a voluntary basis to bring their local areas and surroundings to life. These local heritage societies are active nationwide, in town and country alike. (…) a great deal of Sweden’s cultural heritage. These 1 400 or so centres are repositories for artefacts of past ages: working implements, textiles and furniture. Many of them are furnished in the style of a certain period, while others house large collections of local artefacts.” – from the official website
