Wilson Sewing Machine

How much would a Wheeler and Wilson sewing machine made in 1877 be worth?

Nowhere near as much as you are hoping, sadly. Here's a good guide for understanding the steps in ascertaining the value of an old sewing machine: http://www.ismacs.net/sewing_machine_articles/how_much_is_my_sewing_machine_worth.html the advice is worth reading. THere are some machines that are highly collectable and some that are worth a lot of money. These machines are ones that don't really look like modern machines or are elaborately painted and decorated. Some mid century models that are covered in chrome and in odd colors are also collectible. Some older victorian era machines are worth more as decorative items. Some ornate art nouveau sewing machine desks are worth more than the actual machines: Steam punk enthusiasts use these as computer desks. Here's a recent example of a desk that was worth far more than the machine: http://antiquemachines.net/antique-wheeler-and-wilsonpre-singer-sewing-machine/ The last one I saw cross e-bay sold for a little over 100$ I picked up a non working one for 150$ and it's used purely as a decorative piece -the decorations on the desk and the wrought iron work are so amazing that the machine is irrelevant.

Here are a few other pages that will help you understand the complexity of valuing an old sewing machine: http://www.antiqbuyer.com/sewing_machines.html
