1935 Singer 221 Featherweight Sewing Machine with Scrolled Faceplate, Fully Cleaned and Serviced

Sorry, this item has sold.


1935 Singer 221 featherweight sewing machine with Scrolled Faceplate and carrying case, fully cleaned, and serviced. Serial Number AE057783.
The machine badge was issued on December 30, 1935, and was manufactured in Elizabethsport, NJ, USA.
Being that the Serial number was issued on December 30th, 1935, this machine was most likely made in 1936. Although when dating these machines, we go by the Serial Number Issue date.

This is a very special machine with several notable distinctions.
In 1935, the bobbin winder tension bracket changes from school bell style to a black, flat front mounting style. 1935 was the last year for the solid bobbin winder wheel. 1935 was the last year for the base mold was modified from being split (aka: "split base") under the electrical terminal to being solid.

It has an original 110-volt motor and beautiful chrome trim. The machine, case, and attachments are all in good vintage condition.
This is a very nice machine finished in that classic deep gorgeous shiny black featherweight paint, gold decals and chrome trim. Please see all photos as they are part of the item’s description.

**We have thoroughly cleaned and serviced this machine and replaced any worn or faulty parts. This machine was in wonderful condition and only needed a little TLC, the electrical cord was replaced by its original owner at some point. Has new cushion feet on the machine, we are sending a new motor belt, this one on the machine is good but just getting old.
