    I went and picked her up today shes just perfect, although I need to find a belt for her and I want to get her house refurbished someone had fun with putting some polyurathane on her. I'm just thrilled. I found old packages of needles with her also. no directions no extra feet .
    I believe shes a 15 from earlier comments and something I read on the needle packages, i found these numbers on her
    but when i went searching i did not find much. I was told 1890
    16297125 am I missing something here?
    Thank you for your help and thoughts..

    She looks really well maintained, and from just looking at what you have shown I think your date might be dead on. I love how large the handwheel is and the decals are almost perfect on the machine. You have a very nice machine on your hands and you will really love using it.

    Nothing like treadling away making a quilt!!!

    You will find the NO. on the bed right under her medallion ( right hand side). It starts with Letters. Then go to the singer WS and look her up.She has a very nice Sphinx design . Where did you get her?

    The very oldest models do not begin wirh a letter - just have numbers, so don't be alarmed if what you see does not have a letter or 2 in front of the numbers in trying to date your machine.
    If the numbers you mentioned are the serial number plate on base of machine front, then your Singer Sphynx was made in 1899.
    Here is the page to identify the year - scroll to the bottom where the 8 digit serial numbers are listed, just before Singer began adding alphabet letters in front of the numbers.

    she's beautiful!! TR3 Automotive finisher will shine and clean her without scratching. Be a little gentle on the decals. I could not believe the amount of brown yuk that came off of my Singer!

    Yes, it is an early Singer Model 15 made in 1899. Great purchase.
