About this object

This is a Centennial Featherweight 221 Singer Sewing Machine which was donated to our collection by Julie Gloag. Singer produced these limited edition models in 1951 in celebration of 100 years of company operation. They retailed for $149.50 in the USA which is equivalent to $1,573.96 USA in 2019. Due to this being a limited edition machine, they are today quite rare.
