1920’s Working Corona Manual Typewriter – Folding Carriage – New Ribbon, Case – Black
A very unique antique find in the world of typewriters! A “folding” black Corona from the 1920’s in working condition. As you can see, the typewriter has the classic font. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guides and the paper release lever all work as intended. This magnificent Corona typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original compact case which has a comfortable handle.
This folding Corona is actually smaller than it looks and was primarily used by travelling professionals such as journalists and authors.
The overall condition is good. All of the keys work and the Corona types well. There are minor signs of use on the metal body of the typewriter.
The dates of the patents at the back suggest that it was probably made between 1913 to 1917. However, it is most likely that this particular Corona typewriter was actually made slightly later than that, perhaps even during the early 1920’s.
