The only production records from the Anderson factory is in 1951 when a limited edition of only 10,000 Singer Model 301 sewing machines were manufactured for the Centennial Year Celebration.He lost the case but said it was the same case as the commercial model without the leather covering.SLEEK AND shiny with a simple, elegant, and compact design, the Singer 221 - nicknamed "Featherweight" - is the semi-precious jewel of the world.The Featherweight came in a standard black model made in the U. Those made before World War II (and apparently a few after the war) had an attractive "Egyptian Scrollwork" pattern on the faceplate, while most of those made after the war had a simple, striated pattern of vertical stripes.
He had a government contract model made during WW2. These were used, according to him, by our armed services.**Notice** I love vintage machines, but am not an expert.I can't help you with repair, parts or dating or giving you an estimate on the value of your machine.The machine (model 221), adapted from an earlier portable, the Standard Sew Handy (which company was bought out by Singer) weighs about 11 pounds and has been found to be an ideal machine for quilters and other sewers to take to classes or "on location." Very quiet and sturdily made with all-metal parts (mostly aluminum), the Featherweight sews only straight stitches but it sews them very well.Even the oldest machines, if they've been cared for, still sew wonderfully.
