Antique Singer sewing machine

My husband bought me this old Singer sewing machine at a charity shop for Valentine day a couple years ago.

Singers are not that expensive as they were so many of them produced, and since they were such good quality they were rarely discarded and you can easily find them at second hand, or antique dealers. Older models, or intact machines with matching box, decoration and accessories fetch higher prices.

But personally I feel a well worn model has more charm, just picture the mother sitting for hours in front of her machine, sewing clothe for her family.

Missing a couple parts, but works.

   Each Singer has a serial number, and if you write to the company they can give you a little information about your machine.

Made in 1899
