Hi Grrrls Smiley

I thought you all might appreciate this. My grandmother recently gave me this antique sewing machine (a singer!), It is completely non-electrical, and it was made in 1914!
Anyway, here it is!

Looks to be in excellent condition! If I'm not mistaken it is early 1900's, but no later than 1920. You could contact a Singer repair person on your area. They would be able to tell you the date, and place of manufacture.

On the right hand side there should be a little plaque with a serial number that you can look up on the singer site.
For one letter prefixes:

For two letter prefixes:

It is a very lovely Singer. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine.

I doubt that they would be able to help (depending on the rep you get on the phone - some are loads better than others....)
but you could call the singer 900# and ask if they have any way of finding out.

I would love to get one that is totally manual, non electric.  That would be so cool.  I see them from time to time at the second hand stores but have yet to be brave enough to buy one!

My grandmother has one that looks very similar.  Though I am not sure of its year.

I used this website a few years ago for my old singer (not that old) and it gave me the year and the country where it was made.  Let us know what you find out!
