Singer Featherweight 221K1 Sewing Machine
This lovely Singer 221K1 Featherweight was made in 1949. It is in particularly good condition with no visible wear to the gold decals and no chips or deep scratches in the Japanned surface. The normal pin scratches on the bed are exceptionally few and light and far less than usual for a machine of this age. There is no corrosion or tarnishing of the bright plated parts.
It is fitted with a graduated throat plate.
The machine works perfectly in all respects and has been recently serviced. The rubber mounting feet (bed cushions) are in good condition having been replaced, so they are not flattened or melted as with most machines of this age.
The machine is fitted with a quiet Singer CAK motor for 230v electrical supply. For use in USA / Canada, or other 110V areas, it will be necessary to purchase a small voltage convertor (minimum 100W) which are readily available quite cheaply.
The machine has its original attachments in a green cardboard storage box that is also well above average for an item of ths age. It has an original paper copy of the User’s Manual.
The storage case is in very good condition, compared to most similar cases of thid age.
