    This singer sewing machine belonged to my great grandmother who lived in Mexico. I lived with her after high school over 40 years ago and use to sew on it from time to time. I'm not sure how old it is but it is over 100 years young.
    I am interested in knowing more accurately the age and what it would be worth today. Please provide feedback if you can share some information.

      These are from the early 1900s.Unfortunately or fortunately depending on which side of the fence you're on these are fairly common bringing the monetary value down.They usually go around a hundred bucks.I got a slightly newer one for free.Yours though is in exceptional condition and I am sure would fetch a bit more.The right market and buyer and I could see this going between $200 and $300

      The decals on your Singer are called Tiffany and from what I can see of them they are in fair shape on the body of the machine but it looks like most of the decals are gone off the machine bed . If you give me the serial number I could look it up and tell you how old it is . Or you could go to the Singer web site yourself and look it up . I have this very same machine and cabinet . However my cabinet came to me in pieces and I am having to put it back together . The machine I have is rare , but I can not tell you if yours is or not without knowing the serial number .

      It's a Singer model 15, cabinet is lovely. What is the serial number?

      Where do I find the serial number?

      Lupita sorry I missed your question. The serial number is at the front of the pillar, on the right.
