Yet to polish the chrome but images on the right show you how dirty the machine was! When it was first run it seemed sluggish…. When I looked inside the face plate I had an idea why!
Yuck!!!! I was just glad not to find any spiders as the machine had been languishing in someone’s garage for decades!
Made in 1953 I have named this machine Princess, after Audrey Hepburn’s character in Roman Holiday which came out in the same year.
The 201k was by all accounts one of Singer’s most prestigious and high performance model in the 50s…. so glad to have one. Even if it means elbow grease and TLC! 🙂
