1930’s Working Blue Bird (Torpedo) Ace – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Germany
Working Blue Bird Ace (Torpedo) vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced during the 1930’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works very well! The keys are comfortable and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the shift keys, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This sturdy German typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle.
The overall condition is good. All of the keys work as intended and the Blue Bird Ace functions well. Minor signs of use and age are present. Please note that the case is slightly different than in the photo provided.
The retro black 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 typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
