This is the challenge designed and first produced by the Royal Sewing Machine Company in 1872 solely for the successful businessman and distributor Joseph Harris. The company was already manufacturing the famous Shakespear machine which has almost identical mechanics as the challenge but a different shape in the casting. Later, but for a short period only, a similar machine, the Avon, with a different shuttle mchanism was produced.

The general shape seems to have been inspired by the highly decorative Agenoria made by Arthur Maxfield. The Challenge is a transverse lockstitch with a straight shuttle race and a unique stitch regulator.

This item has "The Royal Sewing Machine Company Limited, Smallheath, Birmingham on the work plate. There is an embossed brass plate cover on the front depicting a knight.
