What makes this Featherweight unique?
This Featherweight is distinguished by the 'Manufactured in Great Britain' decal on the back of the machine arm. A similar decal (composed in French) was frequently placed on 221 Featherweights sold in France. It is not clear why Singer added this origin country decal when a machine would be sold in the UK, but they are certainly rare and difficult to come by.
As soon as one of our Featherweights arrives in the mail to the customer, the fastidious packaging care and wrapping adds to the unveiling enjoyment, making a Featherweight Shop machine purchase extra special and something to always remember.
