Can you email them? You can send them to***@******.***, or***@******.***, and ask them to forward to AppraiserJM.


I am so sorry, the photo went astray and I just got it. Are you still interested in an appraisal?

I am still waiting

Thank you, ***** ***** for the delay.

This would have been produced at the end of the 19th century, or the beginning of the 20th, but most likely from 1900-1920.

It appears that it still has the mangle, and should likely be in working condition (at least with a little WD40).

A reputable antiques dealer, with a store and a good clientele, would charge around $1500 for this machine.
