Your cabinet is in very bad condition and I am not even sure if your machine is working or not. All of this will determine the value the machine is worth. If you check on eBay people list these machines for around $250-400 depending on the case and the condition of the machine. Here on Thrifty Fun, a person posted the same question not long back.

She did come back and tell us she sold her machine for $140 locally and thought that was a very fair price for the machine. Considering I can't find another one sold recently I will take this price and say that the machine value is $140 because that is what a person was willing to pay for this machine not long ago.

Antique/vintage White sewing machines are still one of the favorites and people still like collecting them.
There is really no way that we can tell you the value of your machines unless we found the exact machine (in same condition & possible the same location/area) and of course that will not happen so all we can do is explain about similar machines and what some people are willing to pay.

Generally these machines are posted as 'local pick up only' because they are very heavy and expensive to ship (freight). This means that your area will have a large bearing on the final value of your machine.
"Every market in the country is different and the location of the seller plays a role in how high or low the price will go."


The machine that sold for $140 was an older treadle machine, in very nice condition and working well.
I believe it was under priced for that beautiful cabinet and that is probably the reason it sold within hours after it was posted for sale. But; the owner is happy so that is all that matters.

Here is a machine like yours that is in good condition that is presently listed for sale - $245 w/local pick only. You can place a watch on this machine to see if it sells. It does have accessories that you do not mention nor do you state if machine is in working order.

If you find out more about your machine and take some very good pictures you may be able to sell your machine for $125-$300 according to where you are located.
You can post it for sale on sites like Craigslist, USA4Sale, Facebook Marketplace, letgo, offerup (your zip code local pick up only) and starting price high -$350 - and just lower the price if no one shows an interest.

you can post on all sites at the same time.

Because I happened to look at this seller's posting, they sent me a message (through eBay) dropping the price by $100 to $145 which means it has probably been listed for a while.

Completely incorrect. White Vikings were a totally different brand produced for Eatons department store in Canada.

Hi,

What a beautiful sewing machine. I saw one like this one, listed on ETSY for over $250. Of course that does not mean the lister will get this much for the machine, but that is what the seller has it listed for.

I love seeing sewing machines!

Robyn
