Antique Sewing Machine

While in Singapore's Chinatown Heritage Centre, I saw an antique sewing machine was on display there

Then I realized I had one sewing machine exactly like that at my home. I wonder how much this thing worth in the market now. This thing is heavy and it has 4 small wheels at the base to facilitate its movement.

The sewing machine is still functional and mother still using it for curtain and clothes. The structure is made of steel and wood. The sturdy construction will ensure this machine will last for a very long time

This is the pedal where one put the feet and control the movement/speed of the machine

The brand of the sewing machine still clearly visible

This is the main part of the sewing machine. This is where it houses the needle and the thread. The speed is controlled by the pedal. All the sewing work is done here
