    This machine looks to be a Japanese or Asian import, sold by or for, a company going by the name of Normac. It was made in the 1950's.

    Thank you for your reply!

    Any thoughts on how much it would be worth at a local antique store?

  3. Bernadette Bernadette, 3 years ago
    Sorry Derek it's really impossible to say. Is it in full and safe working order? does it have accessories? A manual? If it does it may be worth $50 - give or take $30. Electric machines are not valuable. It's not going to put your kids through college :) An antique store may not even be interested. It's a 15 class machine with droppable feed dogs, if it's working and has accessories you may get interest from someone who wants to use it. Many of these can be found at thrift stores, the price is guided by condition and funcitonality. They don't really have value as 'antiques'.

    Bernadette, electric sewing machines CAN be valuable, depending upon the age, rarity, condition, and how many accessories are still present. To say that my circa 1928 electric sewing machine by White (in the link below) has no value would be incorrect:
