I have a White treadle sewing machine. I am wondering what year it was made and the value. I sent a few pictures.

Thank you.

Beautiful machine.
It seems you have a true antique so there may be a collector somewhere that would like to have this. One of the biggest problems with treadle machine is shipping as it would be very costly to ship and you will find most sellers list their machines as 'pick up only' so this means a lot of the value will depend on where you live. Some areas may be 'into' older machines and others may admire one but hardly any true 'buyers'.

You should probably read up on some history and then try to find the true age of your machine. Janome also made some White machines but they were called New Home.
New White-branded sewing machines models have not been manufactured since the Husqvarna spinoff in 2006. Husqvarna Viking, Singer, and Pfaff brands are now all owned by SVP Worldwide."

In 1960, White merged with Husqvarna Viking. You can find the age of White sewing machines using the serial number stamped on each machine but you'll have to go to one of the web sites and ask for help. These sites will not help you with value - only information.

You will have to join some web sites - this one has paid and free so all you need is the free. No value questions will be answered - only the information you need to be able to describe your machine properly.

This site has a picture of your machine (or very close) and lots of information. Go to 1881 for picture.

It is difficult to place a value on your machine as you need a recently sold listing to be able to state current value and the machine should be almost exactly the same as your machine which would probably not happen so that means you will have to list your machine at whatever value you feel is what the modern market will pay.

Here is a eBay sold listing that is very similar to your machine:
It sold for $125 with local pick up.

Here is another sold listing - 1985 - $1,299 plus shipping ($275) so you can see there is a wide difference in price. This machine is almost identical to yours but have no way to compare overall condition.

here is a link to sold listings on eBay so you can check out what people are paying for some White treadle machines.

This is a link to this type of machine on Google so you can click on any of the machines to see if it still for sale or if it has sold.

You can try to obtain current value from this site - I would do this after receiving more information about the machine.

Actually - White machines were made from 1858 through 2006, although later years these machines were not all made under the White name brand.
Looking at your serial number, I believe your machine was probably made between 1880 - 1883 but you can provide your serial number to one of the sites to find the exact year/date.

"Go to the Husqvarna Viking website. Click on "Contact Us" and find the current phone number and hours of operation for the Consumer Affairs Department."

The White sewing machine is one of the most common sewing machines found today. The machine was made from 1890 - 1950. In order to date this machine you'll need to call this number 1-800-446-2333 and give them the serial number that is on the bottom label you have posted here.
