1950’s Working Olympia De Luxe Manual Typewriter – Dark Red – New Ribbon & Case
Working Olympia De Luxe vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the late 1950’s. Regardless of such old age, the Olympia 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 guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This German 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 handle.
The overall condition is excellent. All of the letter keys work without sticking and Olympia De Luxe types well. Minor signs of wear and age are present. The case is slightly different than in the photo provided.
The vintage dark red 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 Olympia typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
