Item details

This is a Singer Buttonholer attachment for low shank Singer machines 401, 403, 404, 411, 500, and 503, or most any low shank Singer sewing machine. This is buttonholer #489500, in the teal-green box. It is similar to Singer buttonholer #489510, for slant shank Singer machines, in the same Atomic Age design in a pink box. The manuals for both are interchangeable.

The "atomic pink" and "Jetson green" boxes that held these early 1960s buttonholers were called Jetson, Clamshell, Bullet, Torpedo, or Rocketeer due to their distinctive early 1960s styling and shape.

This is a bottom loaded template buttonholer, which comes with one template already loaded in the machine, 4 alternative templates, the feed dog cover plate, and fixing screw. This buttonholer is in very good shape, and has the original color manual.
