A local antique dealer may be able to help. Museums generally do not advise on valuations. Large numbers of these were made, so the value is not high. If you search for 'miniature singer sewing machine' on eBay you will find many for sale and get a idea of their value.

Hi there,
I have one on these as well as one of the small single hand on in black with singer on it, underneath is a plate and under that is a number 86662 complete. Is there anywhere I would take it to get an accurate evaluation or get in touch with Southebes.
Many thanks

Hi Wendy,
These were widely produced from the 1910s to 1950s. I found this discussion about the current of these machines:
The actual value depends on the condition and what accompanying materials you have (parts / manuals).

I have this very same machine, it was handed down from my grandmother as far as i know.. I would like to know what date this model was built and the value of the machine?
