Looks to me like something someone made, but maybe it is real. They are selling it like it is real.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
wow, that is different,thanks for sharing
The machine has been removed and a desk top put on. Who knew something invented by Frankenstein could sell for $700!
Hehehe. :P That's just what it is! I want to know who would buy such a thing!Originally Posted by Pam
It looks to me ( besides being a great idea ) that they used the top of an old dresser and substituted the plywood for a broken mirror. More storage and suppose to be quaint but I think someone did put it together. Mercy, the two pieces appear in the same era so why not.
My thoughts exactly. I think it's awkward and ugly. Good luck on getting $700 for it! Who'd want to sit at that "desk" with the treadle still in place? Although, it might make a nice footrest. LOLOriginally Posted by Pam
Years ago my great aunts had an antique piano made into a dresser for a bedroom. Go figure!!
It just doesn't look right to me. I sure wouldn't pay $700 for it.
Interesting! I might give them $50 for it...much like someone would pay for other sewing related things to decorate their rooms...certainly not worth $700
