    Antique Singer Information?

    Name:  Sewing Machine.jpg
Views: 2150

    I'm new to the forum. I bought a Singer sewing machine at a yard sale this weekend for $60. I was hoping someone on here might be able to give me a little information on it. I looked over it real quick for a model number, but all I found was what I think is the serial number on the bottom when I lifted it up. That number is 119198. Anything anyone can tell me about it, or any resources I can use myself will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    There is a vintage sewing machine section on this board. Lots of knowledgeable people and they are always willing to help.
    Welcome to this wonderful board.
    Machine looks to be in mint condition, I haven't seen those decals before. Lucky you.

    Thanks for the info. I put it up in that forum, too. I can delete this one if I need to. I'm not sure what it is. This is one of the first antiques that I bought.

    It's very pretty but I don't think it's an old one. These are being made again in China (?), reproductions of the old Singer 15s. You can tell because the decals have more colors on them than the originals. What you paid is about the going rate for these.

    Thanks for the info. I would have been really surprised it if was old, as good of shape as it is in.

    Yes, it's a reproduction not an antique.
