I have inherited 2 sewing stands.  I am attaching photos of each of them.
The smaller one is a table-top stand, with 2 drawers.
The larger one is a floor stand (quite heavy stand).

Would you know what era these are from?  Also, I am considering selling the floor stand.  Do you have an idea as to what I should charge?

Thank you, Maggie

PS  I am attaching larger photos this time.

please send multiple views to my email and include the original post so i know what i am looking at.

all surfaces including underneath and inside


thanks for the photos

both are from teh 1910-20s.

the stands would sell retail in a shop at 125$

the floor model is the more unusual and should sell easily in a retail setting.

i hope this is what you wanted to know.

In regards to American antique, vintage and collectible furniture I can help with wood identification, styles, age, periods, historical coatings, materials, techniques, repair, restoration, refinishing, and value. I do not study mid century and later furniture nor do I deal in lamps, and other smalls. You may ask for values and I will give you current market values, I will not give you 'feel good' values. Understand that there are many factors that contribute to market value. If you want a feel good, unrealistic number, please call a local inexperienced appraiser. It is my desire to help you and in doing so I increase my knowledge as well. For that I thank you.


I have been in the antiques furniture and restoration business and in the sales of antique furniture for 40+ years and have continued my education in the trade attending workshops and seminars by various organizations, institutions, and private collectors.
