My name is XXXXX XXXXX maybe i can help.
I know this machine and they are nice and you are right they never break down but I do.
I do not work on Sundays but I will be back on it on Monday Thanks for your patients.
This is just a post to keep the question from timing out so that I can answer it for you thank you for waiting.
Your White treadle sewing machine serial # XXXXX made between 1915- and 1916 in Cleveland, Ohio by the White company. And they range in prices from $200 up $650 refinished in shops if you are looking to sell it then I would start out at $325 if cleaned up nice and pretty you can always come down in price but you can never go up. I hope this is the answer and what you were looking for let me know if I can be of any more help.
Hi Dorothy,here is a cool site about the machine for you I hope you still use it to sew thanks, Alan
Thank you so much for this information, and for the links! It's a little older than I thought it was and valued higher than I thought as well -- both, good news. ;-)
I'm still debating about selling it. It was my husband's grandmother's, and I have my own machine, though instinct tells me the treadles are more durable than the more modern electric machines. I can remember sewing on the former. The first machine I received any training on was a White -- standard in the school system I was in at the time. I always thought that spoke well for their durability.
Again, I appreciate your time and expertise on this question. I guess I'll be hearing from you again, after you review pics I send on the china cabinet.
Until then. . .

You have been a great customer and a good sport! I see the post now on Janelle, I know how it happened you reposted to me from your sewing machine question, and yes that was my mistake as you well.
You know I do research and spend a lot of time on my questions researching them. And there are 5 pages of people with questions it is impossible to work on one at a time or else you miss looking up something as nice as your sewing machine, please excuse the mistake.
