Made in the late 1940's to early 1950's.
With the oval top on, looks just like a fine piece of furniture in your livingroom, doesn't it?
Open the cabinets and your featherweight is just waiting for you to begin sewing.
There is even a special area to place your collected attachments, easy access from your machine when sewing, and easy to reach the bobbin area.
Have you ever seen a cabinet this gorgeous in person? I have read about the elusive Singer cabinet no. 68 made just for the Featherweight and finally found one! It is absolutely perfect for the age and the wood is beautiful. If you didn't know what it was, you would not know if housed and enabled you to sew on your featherweight - until you opened the cabinet doors. Then you will notice the spool holder and a featherweight fitting just perfectly. No other machine will fit this cabinet. Take off the oval top, place your featherweight in (fits very secure), and begin sewing. Absolutely breath-taking!
Very few photos of this cabinet exist, let alone sitting in someone's front parlor. Browse the photos and enjoy the scenery! I do have this listed in my ebay store - The Sew Box - so you can also check it out there. Lovely!

The back is just as fine looking as the front.
Special pads to protect your featherweight from scratching while placing in the secure area.
The oval top has two fuly finished sections attached, which fit the oval cut-out. This keeps the oval lid from moving and it is secure.
Isn't this just beautiful!
