A brick-red miniature sewing machine with gold and black decoration, featuring a squat hexagonal logo of a running deer, manufactured at the Orsha sewing machine factory in Belorus, USSR in the 1950s.

This example has a black/brown Bakelite base. All the others we've seen photographs of online have a wooden base ... we don't know if this means that the base is a subsequent replacement, or whether this was a different edition of the machine.
