Is an antique white sewing machine valuable?

It was my great grandmother's machine.

It could be; I have an old white singer sewing maching that was my grandmothers and it was appraised at $450 a few years ago. It depends on brand and on whether or not it has all its original parts and whether it still work or not. Singer sewing machines are usually worth a fair amount.

There is really no way to know without knowing the model and year it was made. If the sewing machine is very old there always is a chance it could be worth something.

Generally, post-1920's everyday (non-specialty) electric machines are not worth a lot, though they may be worth quite a bit in parts if they are real workhorses. The reason is that those extra durable machines, just like some automobiles, just plain run forever and people love them. The collectible exceptions are treadle machines and Singer Featherweights, which are highly desirable.

The value depends on the condition of the machine and what model it is. To determine the value, take the machine to a sewing machine shop.
