Customer Question
Hi there! I...

Hi there! I have a solid wood sewing table/cabinet with a metal label on the inside that reads Sears.Roebuck and Co.-U.S.A. For Correspondence and Parts regarding this cabinet always mention 117.216. So I am wondering if this cabinet is worth anything?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

The sewing machine is not in it. It opens up to a table and closes to a smaller cabinet.
