Singer Sewing Machine 1920's Advertising Cards - American Song Birds - Part 2

This group includes the Meadowlark, Brown Thrasher, Scarlet Tanager and the Mocking Bird. With ads talking about how with New Singer Portable Electric lets you sew "by your favorite window or in the living room at night with the family" or the Singer Sewing Motor, "The cost of operation is trifling, averaging about three hours of sewing for one cent". Then we have the "famous Singer No. 66, round bobbin machine, equipped with Singer Motor and Singerlight and enclosed in De Luxe Library Table No. 40" in "walnut, mahogany or brown mission". But "for those who prefer a special table for Singer portable electrics...Tables No. 301 and 304". There isn't much that you couldn't buy with the Singer name on it!


  1. Do you know the value of these cards? I found 4 of them in an old book at a consignment store.
    Thank you!

  2. I haven't ever tried to sell mine, I'd suggest checking eBay or etsy.
