We always review antique singer sewing machines and consider the recent auction results for such items. To do that we go through hundreds of recent prices from different auction houses. We compare and match the submitted singer sewing machine we similar items and from that, we conclude what the value of the antique singer sewing machine would be.
Singer sewing machines dominated the market in the late 20th century and are still very much synonymous with sewing in general today. There are other brands of antique sewing machines. But in this article, we will focus entirely on the value of antique singer sewing machines.
This is an antique treadle sewing machine with hide-away stand in oak and cast iron by the Singer Sewing Machine Company. The machine has serial numbers AC360494 on it which indicates it was one of 35,000 alotted on October 11, 1928, in Class Model 66. The Singer 66 uses Class 66 bobbins, 15×1 needles have an oscillating hook and low shank. This does not have the extra decorative decal on it.
This appears to be a Singer model 66 sewing machine from 1948 with foot pedal and lamp. The black crinkle lacquer finish is rather rare and enthusiasts might be willing to pay more than the estimate given for a sewing machine in working order.
Based on the serial number, this is an 1893 gilt and polychrome stencil decorated treadle sewing machine with what looks to be an oak table and cover, possibly original. As far as sewing machines go, this is a pretty good one; the current market for these is soft, however.
This appears to be a Singer treadle sewing machine from 1888 in a much later case. The condition seems to be good, only the gilding is worn off. A working and fully serviced sewing machine should easily find a buyer. These machines are built to last.
The apprised object is a sewing machine made by the company Gritzner which was located in Durlach in Germany. This company was founded in 1872 and produced sewing machines, and motorbikes. This sewing machine has the serial number 1.379.201 which dates it into the year 1905.This piece is in a used condition and there are many little damages visible.
Decorative antique sewing machine with mother-of-pearl inlays. The serial number of this machine is 711691. The dust cover has inlaid wood. Dimensions of the machine with dust cover are 50 cm height, 31 cm width and 26 cm deep. The weight is over 13 kg. The photos are an integral part of the description of this lot. The sewing machine will be carefully packaged and sent by registered mail.
Very old sewer possibly German as the name may suggest. Acquired from a deceased estate. The sewing machine stills functions, has a built in cabinet for storage and run by foot pedal and cables. The badge says Gritzner model Durlach serial number 3549409. It can be used to sew or as an ornament. May need some restoration to timber work. Contains two drawers to place sew accessories. It is black and timber is brown.
Needle types used by these machines depend on the make, but compared to other sewing machine mechanisms, vibrating shuttle often requires needles with a larger eye, which usually means thicker needles. So if your machine is skipping stitches, try a thicker needle, or a top stitch needle that has a larger eye than a regular one.
Hello Jana. I got no experience with these machines, but I have read about them the past week, and I have also been surprised not to see a counterweight at least for the short arm VS machines. It should reduce vibrations significantly. I looked at this Grizzner type R machine. It is produced from 1945-50 and therefore seems a late VS machine, but it got no counterweight. -der-naehmaschinen/gritzner/Perhaps these machines would not be able to sew faster anyway.
The machine is gorgeous and in very good condition, in its original cabinet, with its manual, a box of accessory feet that may or may not go with it, and a half dozen bobbins. The serial number put it about 1895.
1 The Gritzner Machine Co. Ltd Every so often we come across promotional material from sewing machine manufacturers that may be of interest to other collectors. We are also aware that many ISMACS members enjoy collecting machines made by German manufacturers in the 1900 s rather than those of an earlier date which can be rare not to mention expensive so we hope the following is of interest. A Potted History of the Gritzner Company One of the giants of German sewing machine manufacture was the Gritzner Company. The firm was established by Maximilian Gritzner at Karlsruhe, Durlach in 1872 with the first machines being modelled on the Singer 12. The business grew rapidly, then in 1881, a fire devastated the factory which had to be substantially rebuilt but within months the firm was back in production. In 1886 the company went public with Max s sons Rudolph and Julius as board members, the new company continued to expand and not content with producing sewing machines the company diversified in 1897 when it started producing bicycles and then in 1903 motorcycles. This makes its production figures quite remarkable as by 1902 a million sewing machines had been produced with the two million mark being reached just eight years later. In 1925 Gritzner took over one of the few other major German sewing machine manufacturers Frister & Rossmann before merging with Pfalzische Nahamaschinen & Fahrradfabrik formerly Gebr Kayser. The company survived the Second World War and continued to develop new machines before being sold to Pfaff in We don t know when the company entered the British market but as Gritzner & Co. Ltd they were advertising machines such as the Model A and Original Graziosa (Model D) in the 1880 s The company later changed its name to The Gritzner Machine Company Ltd and Ad. Ries & Co., 45 Hatton Garden, London were the company s wholesale agent for many years before being replaced by Fred Dickson, 23 Bucklersbury, London by the early 1900 s The Illustrated Catalogue. We picked this illustrated Gritzner catalogue up at a flea market for a couple of pounds sadly it s not dated but there are a couple of clues to its age, firstly it mentions the company s latest chief award The Gold Medal of the Paris World s Exhibition 1900 and secondly it refers to the company s Motor Cycle department which makes it post According to the catalogue the factory had the capacity to produce 100,000 machines a year and employed 2,400 workmen. The range of machines is quite extensive and covers both treadle and hand machines. A letter identifies each model type, a number designating the style of cabinet work and a sub number (in roman numerals) giving the style of cover. This sequence is continued throughout the entire range.
2 The Range of Machines. It s interesting at this late date the company was still marketing a fiddle-bed transverse shuttle machine although in the catalogue it does make the point that the High arm machines are generally preferred! These machines were designated as the model Family A and the range was as follows: No. 1 A without cover No. 2 A I with ornamental square cover No. 2 A IV with ornamental bent cover No. 3 A without cover No. 4 A I with ornamental square cover No. 4 A IV with ornamental bent cover No. 5 on an iron base without cover No. 5a A on wood base without cover No. 6 A I on wood base with ornamental square cover No. 6 A IV on wood base with ornamental bent cover The difference between the No. 2 A and the No. 4 A machines is that with the No. 2 the table is curved and the machine attached directly to it. With the No. 4 A machine the table is straight edged and the machine has its own base. The No. 5 A and 6 A machines are the hand versions. The High Arm Family transverse shuttle machines are the model B again there is a full range of variants from the No. 1 B treadle without cover through to the hand machine with square cover the No. 6 B II. Then there are additional types of cabinet work including a drop head cabinet, work box sewing machine, fancy wood cabinet and shown below an unusual combination sewing machine. The Gritzner C range was the company s High Arm Medium transverse shuttle machine there were four models which differed only in the style of cover provided. No model D is listed but the Models E and F were oscillators. The E was suitable for Families, tailors and manufacturers and was available in seven styles. The F was for extra heavy work and was available with or without a cover. They could be fitted with a roller presser foot and wheel
4 A full range of Central - Bobbin machines known as Palma were produced with two models - the V for domestic & light industrial and the W for extra heavy work which had a larger passage under the arm. Top of the range appears to have been the No. 20 V a drop head model which had four drawers with wood handles. Finally there were the Saxonia machines, Gritzner produced two models G and H The model G was a low arm transverse shuttle machine with fiddle bed. Three types of cover were available for this model, square, bent and ornamental bent. The model H was a high arm transverse shuttle machine with rectangular bed. Covers were as per the previous model but with an additional ornamental square cover. The machine I d really like to see an example of however is the model H not on a wood base but on an iron one! Our Gritzner(s) Despite being made in huge quantities we do not come across Gritzner machines that often and it maybe many were sold as labelled machines. We only have one definite and one possible in our collection. The first (left) would have been designated according to the catalogue a High Arm Saxonia hand machine with square cover. Saxonia No. 6 H II. The serial number is which, if the reported production is reasonably correct, would mean it was made c1907. The second does not carry the Gritzner spider Trade Mark rather it has been labelled as a Collier No.3 for J. Collier & Sons Ltd 134 to 142 Clapham Road, London. It has a serial number of which would mean it was produced c1912. 2b1af7f3a8
