Question
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

Answer
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,
Irene

Expertise

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.
