1947 Featherweight

A number of times I have mentioned my 1947 Featherweight Singer Machine. Many people have been so surprised by the size of it (the body of which measures only 10in. or 25cm.) and even more surprised when I tell them that a large portion of the sewing I do is with this little guy.
I have seen others like this one and this one but I have to say, at the prices being asked, I think mine had to have been a steel.
Even the detailing is so very special. What's not to like?
