Q A

Irish Sunday Mirror - - STYLE ON SUNDAY -

Can you give me a value on my old trea­dle sewing ma­chine, which is in a carved wooden cabi­net and comes com­plete with the orig­i­nal tools? Steve Mckin­ney, via email Your ma­chine looks like a Singer and while they are vir­tu­ally in­de­struc­tible they are also hard to sell be­cause they are so large and heavy. I’d as­sume €50-€100 for a quick sale. Some peo­ple have sold good Singers for a few hun­dred pounds, but it could take a while. Smaller Vic­to­rian table­top ones – by New­ton Wilder, Weir and Cook­son – can also fetch hun­dreds.
