Collecting Singer Sewing Machines

Filed under: Resources — Cheryl Todd @ 11:16 am

Antique 1934 Singer Featherweight Sewing Machine

Did you know…?  That Singer sewing machines were first manufactured in 1851?  Collecting Antique Singer Sewing Machines is a serious business, where style of machine, manufacture date, and condition are all-important.  The small, portable, and just-darn-cute Featherweight Styles are particularly sought after and highly collectable.  In order to determine the vintage, look to the serial numbers on Singer sewing machines.   If manufactured prior to 1900 you will find numbers only. After 1900, the machine serial numbers have a single or two-letter prefix. 

Two great websites to check out are: Singersewingmachine.com and Sewingshop.com.

  3. Hello! Sorry it has taken so long to get back with you.
    It is very hard for us to put a value on an item without looking at it. But I will tell you that the following site is very useful for finding information on your singer sewing machine. You can look your machine up by serial number to see approximately when it was made. Here is the link: http://www.singersewingmachine.com/manufacture.htm

    Also, we post the prices of all the items sold in our auction, which might give you an idea of its value. I did a quick search of our past auction using the term “singer” and here is what I found: http://www.auctionflex.com/showlots.ap?co=10355&weid=0&weiid=0&archive=y&keyword=singer&lso=pricedesc&pagenum=1&lang=en

    I hope this is helpful!

  6. I have an old Singer machine, by the serial was manufactured in 1923. It is set in a domed wooden box with “Singer” on the side. Inside the top, there are a box of accessories, a small oil can, and a thigh switch. The serial number is Y1079207. The machine itself is in good condition, turns and runs freely. Some wear on the Singer name on the back of the machine, but the rest of the gold filigree is intact. The case bottom has a few small pieces of wood missing, but still I would consider “fair.” Still has the original user’s manual with it as well. Any ideas?

  8. Preston,

    Your machine sounds like something we would consign to auction, but the condition is very important. Also, are you local? Shipping the item to us could be pricey. Are you able to email me some photos? Please send to auctions@azfirearms.com.

    Looking forward to your reply!
