Familiarize yourself with furniture styles to get a better handle on dating vintage sewing cabinets. This can help you determine which treadle sewing machine cabinet is authentic versus a reproduction, or allow you to estimate a date.
Do keep in mind that the machine and cabinet may not have been sold together and that the machine could be older or newer than the cabinet itself. If your sewing cabinet has a treadle, this likely makes it older; however, treadles are still in production.
During the 1950s, many sewing cabinets had a knee-press option as an alternative to a foot pedal. You may be able to estimate a date for your cabinet by assessing stylistic features.
Vintage sewing machine cabinets range from beautiful antiques to practical, usable, high quality pieces.
Knowing more about your vintage sewing machine cabinet can help you make the most of this addition to your home.
