This is a pretty substantial piece.

Fireplace opening is 36″ square

Asking $300 obo.
We do not have room for it, so no REASONABLE offer refused.

 

 

Antique White treadle sewing machine in original unrestored condition. Wooden cabinet is complete and in pretty good shape for its age. Very solid, no rot, but has some wear and nice patina. This is the 6 drawer model and was patented in 1898. Cast iron decorative legs in great shape with no rust. Machine seems to work great, the belt that’s on it is loose and very old, but the machine turns over and treadle operates freely. Appears to just need a new belt and it could be used. We’ve been using it as a decorator piece and side table, but now have no room so we need to sell it.

 

 

 

 

 

Antique White Treadle Sewing Machine

6 Feb

I went to the monthly flea market and antique show in our town on Saturday and picked up a few cool things. One of which was thing complete antique White sewing machine. I was drawn to it because obviously, our last name is White. I figured if nothing else, it would be a cool side table. Turns out it’s all complete and works, needs to have the belt replaced because it’s stretched and dry rotted, but with a few bucks and a little work, we can actually use it. I figured it was made around the teens, but from what I’ve found it was made between 1890-1900. I bought it for a song and met a really nice dude in the process, who I ended up buying quite a bit more from that day. Think we might have to hang on to this for awhile.
