1920’s Working Underwood Standard 4 Bank – Black – New Ribbon & Case
Working Underwood Standard 4 Bank vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the mid to late 1920’s. Regardless of such old age, the black machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. 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 American made 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 case which has a comfortable leather handle.
The overall condition is excellent. All of the keys work and the typewriters operates as expected. Please note that the ribbon nuts have been replaced and that the key “L” is tilting to the side. Other signs of use and age are present – please refer to the photos.
The vintage Underwood typewriter would be ideal for writers and authors, especially in the creative field. It will also be a unique gift. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the 4 Bank typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
