The Singer "Featherwieght" 221 was introduced at the "Century of Progress" World's Fair held in Chicago in 1933-1934. Machines sold at the fair were "Badged" with a special badge as seen in the photo. This particular "Featherweight" was manufactured during the first production run. Its serial number was assigned Oct. 3rd, 1933. It has its original case (Style #1 - notice the brass locking tabs), attachments, foot controller, owner's manual, and keys.
This special variation is considered by many "Featherweight" Collector's to be the "Holy Grail" in their collections - it is in ours!
Pictured also, is a tea pot/ tea ball and needle case from the fair.
