/ Jones treadle sewing machine value? 1940's!?!
It's still in decent condition and still actually works!
Does anyone work in the antique business that can give me an idea of its value before I take it to the skip
It's not worth very much at all, sadly, especially if it is one that is in a box as opposed to a treadle. Even treadles in good nick might only raise £50. But try not to dump it- put in in the yellow paper (stuff for sale) or preloved or something so it can go to a good home.
(I have a lovely Singer treadle, used to have a Jones hand turned m/c)
As an antiques dealer I can tell you that these are very much in vogue right now and highly collectable. A mint model can be worth anything up to £500.
Please disregard my last post.
Sometimes I get a bit over involved whilst watching Vintage Antiques Roadshow.
I'm actually a teacher.
If I remember correctly, there was a bit of a fashion a few years ago of people binning the actual sewing machine but using the stand for various garden uses

Friday night kicked in early then?
I managed to have a look online at the value and its looking like upto £100 so ill probably keep it if I can find some use for it. The iron legs alone and treadle would look cool outside if I could convert it into something
Time to get the thinking cap on
I bought one for a fiver - it's great for making curtains!
