Beret Knitting Machines - Old and New

Beret machine
I found this antique machine on a web site about knitting. It used latch needles on a flat bed to produce berets.
The shape of the beret was controlled by a shaping drum that runs along the length of the machine. The berets were placed on wooden boards to provide a final shape. The machine was manufactured in Troyes, a major centre for the French knitting industry.

Meanwhile, this is what's available now on the market - made in China:
