Harness Sewing Machine, Cast Iron, Treadle, Czech Crest

Looking for any information on when or where a Cast Iron Treadle Harness Sewing Machine was made. Between the upper machine body and the treadle, there is a cast iron brace between the machine's legs. It was made with a Czech crest in it - looks like a castle with a lion on either side. The treadle is also ornate with filigree & a heart shape. We are assuming that this machine was brought with the immigrant family from Bohemia or was ordered & shipped from Bohemia. Has anyone seen one of these or have any information on when/where it was manufactured? The family that owned the machine came to the U.S. in the mid-to-late 1800's. Would appreciate any advice on where to look next for info. Not having much luck so far.
