This German-made Singer sewing machine, model number 401G, is from the 1950s and comes with its original case. The statement beige case calls attention to the Singer logo dial in rich antique brown on the top left. On the bottom right, the name of a possible previous owner, Lynette Lobo is stuck on.
Extending the same colour palette, the sturdy sewing machine’s body glazes beautifully against brown-in-copper highlights. The 401G is a semi-industrial, multi-decorative stitch sewing machine. This is a slant needle machine. It has extravagant features like built-in stitches and fashion cam support. Adaptable to a treadle table, it includes a power pedal, needle and bobbin. The printed booklet is missing.
