Collectibles-General (Antiques)/Is my sewing machine have any value ?


I have a 1947 domestic sewing machine with oak cabinet with box of assorories and a handbook I would like to know if it can be a collectors item thank you

Hello Carmella,

Thank you for your query but I cannot be of assistance to you.  My expertise is in toy or miniature sewing machines, antique thimbles and needlework tools.  I do not deal or have knowledge about full-sized sewing machines or their value.

However, if you read back in my file, you will find links to websites that may be of assistance to you.

Kind regards,

Collectibles-General (Antiques)

I have been a collector of antique sewing tools and thimbles for over 30 years. I am also a dealer in this field and sell on eBay under the name -- serengeti2. I am NOT, and I repeat NOT an expert on antique or vintage domestic household sewing machines used for everyday home sewing. I can offer help when it comes to Toy or miniature collectible sewing machines ONLY.
