Stunning unique Centennial Featherweight in superb condition. Completely serviced, cleaned, polished, electrically inspected, timed, tuned and sampled - rest assured, this Featherweight 221K will be ready to sew right out of the case.
There are a few components of the machine indicating that it was marketed in Sweden: the plaque on the front, the Bakelite-banded motor with gold writing, and the markings on the light housing. This machine is fitted with its original rare 220-volt motor that has been rewound to 110 voltage to work at optimum speed and torque, so you can plug it in and begin sewing with effortless power. This 1951 Featherweight also bears a Centennial badge in celebration of Singer's 100-year anniversary.
