Antique Sewing Machine Perhaps?

Hi,
I recently picked up a sewing machine from a garage sale.
The sewing machine is an OLD “Imperial” made from cast iron, and came with the table that it fits into. The sewing machine can be folded into the table, and turned into a mini desk.
The machine works perfect. I cant find a date on it..so not sure how old it is…but is like a light brownish/yellow color if that helps?

Is this thing worth anything or is it just taking up space?

Any infor would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you.

    The brown color makes me think 50s to 60s — does it look something like: http://dontai.com/wp/2010/04/19/imperial-sewing-machine-model-535/

    And if it works perfectly, it’s worth the space to someone who sews, or wants to sew. If you don’t sew, the intrinsic worth isn’t going to pay the rent.

    Sorry, old machines are usually not worth the gas it takes to transport them home.

    If the console is in good shape it can be used as a table. The machine can be used as a door stop, boat anchor or sell it for scrap iron.

    Only Singer Featherweight models are of any value.

    Clean it up, take a picture and advertise the machine on Craig’s List. I bought an empty console that way. My husband put a shelf inside so I could set a more modern machine into the top – the lid stays open as a work surface.

    Your machine is most likely made in Japan during the 40’s and 50’s (early 60’s). They aren’t bad machines but have minimal tolerance specs and are usually clanky. Many are nice though and sew well. The value isn’t there like a Singer, Necchi, or Pfaff of that time. Its worth is only what someone is willing to pay and your willing to accept. If it sews well, keep it and use it.
    I disagree with the answer above about Singer 221 Featherweights being the only machines of that era of any value. The Singer 201 was probably one of the best made as well as the Singer 15-91, 301, 401, 500 series. Featherweights are coming out of the woodwork now and prices are dropping.
