    This does not look like a sewing machine cabinet - just a sewing cabinet. You can tell because it's too small, and it is solid between the front legs.

    White had one similar in design, but it's larger and the front lower panel is a false drawer and it folds back so you can sit under the machine.

    BTW - it's a Martha Washington style cabinet, and a very pretty one too.

    Here is what the sewing machine cabinet looks like -

    The sewing cabinet is significantly smaller than the same styled sewing machine cabinet. Usually a lot older too.

    If I hadn't just bought a White rotary in a different cabinet (That I also really like) I'd be asking my sister to go get this one for me.

    What you have is a Martha Washington cabinet. I don't believe it was meant for a sewing machine. Just sewing items. I have one, it is for patterns, thread and all things sewing. The only one that I have seen with a machine was posted on here a couple of days ago. JMHO - such a waste of a beautiful cabinet.

    I've seen both styles in eastern NY and MA from time to time, but none of the spool cabinets had such beautiful inlay. Prices vary from $75 to $250 regardless of condition at the whimsy of their sellers. There are similar copies by other cabinetmakers also.

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Yup - that one is rather easy as it's a Singer cabinet.

    I've got that one in the plain style and the older style. Would be neat to get that style but I think I'm at capacity with 9 treadle cabinets (and 16 electric cabinets- and then all the cased and loose machines)

    To the OP - did you get that cabinet? Every time I look at it I love it even more. I've never seen one with the inlay like that, and usually they plainer ones go for over $100.

    I did not get this one; it was being sold for an asking price of 100. Thanks to your informative answer though if I ever come across another one, I'll know the answer and it will be mine.

    I have a cabinet just like this. I will take a photo of the machine in the morning and post it.

    My son has a Martha Washington cabinet, a White Rotary in it. Someone has lost the hinges on the left and no top. But the machine looks good and the rest of the cabinet is in fair shape. Any one with Hinges???
