Singer 221 Black Featherweight Portable sewing machine SN: EH373360 July 1952. We would like to introduce you to George our Singer 221 foot operated portable sewing machine. Manufactured in the United Kingdom 22 July 1952 and with its original carry case with accessories tray which sits on top inside the carry case. Overall the machine shows light wear from limited use it does therefore have light surface scratches but the decals are in good condition overall. The cranks are rust free [see photos] and the machine has been cleaned where accessible from old grease and oil - then re-greased and oiled.
The motor is working fine, though tested for sewing purposes and externally cleaned, is untouched & unserviced by us. The power cord plug has been converted to a period Australian standard plug. All external surfaces have been cleaned and polished the foot throat plate does have a small nickel loss but this does not impede sewing and is easily replaced. Bobbin area has been cleaned - the thread tensioner was completely dismantled and cleaned at the same time.
This item also comes with: bobbin case, two original bobbins, oil can [without the cap] and genuine Singer feet attachments - see the last photo. We have installed four new table feet - since the old ones on this machine had perished.We have recently used this machine ourselves to sew a small project and it worked perfectly well and quietly...
