A fine example of a scarce Singer 221 Featherweight Blackside sewing machine, one of a small quantity produced during two known production runs around the time of World War II. It includes a number of parts that were finished in black (rather than a shiny chrome-like finish) in order to preserve materials essential for the war effort. Serial number AG013067 can be found on the underside of the base, dating the machine to July 1941. The Blackside features include blackened faceplate, stitch length indicator, presser foot lever, full black balance wheel, and other small parts that would normally have a shiny plated finish in normal production. The correct Blackside accessories are provided, including multiple presser feet and bobbins. It also includes proper early foot controller, functional case, and a 1941 221-1 instruction manual. Very good working condition, with a small stitch sample left on the machine, minor surface scratches and minimal wear commensurate with age and use. The case does have some black tape added to the handle and corner wear areas. Dimensions: Machine: Approximately 9 ¾” H x 15 ½” W (open) x 7 ¼” D; Case: 12” H x 13” W x 8” D. Ref: 691
