This marvelous Featherweight still has its original guarantee, purchase receipts, coupon book, and service receipts give to the original owner, Alice McLellan. Though the Singer employee failed to record the machine's serial number, all the paperwork is consistent with other records from the 1930s.
This Featherweight first arrived to us in very poor condition, and because it is such an early Featherweight, we made the decision to restore it back to gloss black. The choice to restore a sought-after machine like this one in black greatly increased its value and appeal, as the traditional look has been maintained. Each one of our restored and repainted Featherweights receives hours of personal care in its disassembly, painting process, reassembly, stitch sampling and overall preparation for each and every customer.
