Please not I updated photos and description 1-6-19. 1933 SINGER Featherweight Sewing Machine. With Pedal, Case, Bobbin & Extras. Nice physical condition and sews!
Serial # AD550527 October 3, 1933. This machine is one of the first 10,000 Featherweight machines ever produced.
From the research that I have done, it appears to be original! But that is my opinion, it is necessary for you to inspect the photos carefully your self to make that decision. I turned on the machine and it does run well, needle goes up and down as it should, and the mechanism around the bobbin spins and it sews fine (Photo 12). Other than a few small scratches due to normal usage, it seems to be in good cosmetic and working condition.The light on the machine works as does the peddle (photo 7). The four rubber feet seem to be worn down and could use to be replaced (Photo 11). All the beautiful decals are in good condition except the one in the middle of the table is worn. It dose come with the attachments including one bobbin and bobbin case shown in the photos (Photo 1). Also the case is included as well (photo 8&9).
The case is in fair condition, the leather handle is missing but the case can be refurbished if desired. This is a special sewing machine since it is one of the first featherweights ever made. If you have any information that you would like to share with me about this machine, please feel free to contact me.
After more research I have found that the case is what is called a type one case , that was used for the first 200 Featherweights made. Different from the type two case that does not have the large hole on one side of the tray.
