Johndmutter Store 1933 Singer 221 Featherweight Sewing Machine #2,161 ONCE IN A LIFETIME CHANCE! 2,161 of 10,000 FOR 1933 CHICAGO WORLDS FAIR This it it, the real McCoy. Unless you work for the Smithsonian or possibly Christies, this is going to be the earliest, most sought after, and very likely the ONLY authentic Chicago World 's Fair Singer 221 Featherweight Sewing Machine you ever lay eyes on. And it is almost certainly the lowest numbered machine that will ever be offered for sale on the open market. It is the earliest 221 ever on , and most of the prominent Singer 221 brokers in the country have never even heard of someone who possesses a Featherweight of this rare vintage. Over 2,000,000 of these machines were manufactured. They are still widely regarded as one of the best sewing machines in the world, an engineering marvel of strength and power while also being amazingly light and easily portable. The first production run was of a very limited number of 10,000, to be displayed and sold at the Chicago World's Fair in 1933. Machines from this production run are almost unheard of. This machine is number 2,161 of that original production run of 10,000. And it is in EXCELLENT CONDITION. It still works smoothly and is fully functional as a working sewing machine; It also happens to be a piece of American History and a spectacular investment piece. Singer 221's are only gaining in value each year. Their popularity increases, and therefore the demand for them rises, as each year their supply and availability decreases.
