The Singer 201k was named the Rolls Royce of sewing machines because it was super smooth in operation thanks to the full rotary hook and precisely made carbon steel gears.

The light aluminium frame was only 9-3/4" wide, even with the fabric rest down it still was only 14-1/2"....!

I'm sure its still the smallest adult sewing machine ever produced.

There is no reference charts available to tell us the exact model number from it's serial number.

However hopefully this page will help identify your sewing machine model number in conjunction with the other details we have available relating to sewing machine serial numbers..!

This machine has the "Acanthus Leaves" decal set which was used by Singer on the 12K and 13K models.

Although they are often found at garage sales, flea markets, and estate sales with very low price tags, there are several models of antique Singer sewing machines that are highly sought after by collectors.

the long bobbin/shuttle was inserted into its case which looked like a bullet, then the case was located into the machine and lay in a frame that looked like a boat hull.

When the machine was running it most likely was quite noisy because the shuttle moved forward and backwards at great speed, at times it made the machine vibrate.

It had smoothness that other sewing machine manufacturers could only dream about. The Singer 201K was cast iron in Black with a round neck body, also made with an Aluminium body which had a square neck.

The Aluminium body machines were made in Black/Gold, Beige or Beige/Brown.

Its manufacturing year was 1955 to 1964 The Singer 66K is the large version of the Singer 99K.
