1960’s Working Olivetti Lettera 22 Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Great Britain
Working Olivetti Lettera 22 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced during the 1960’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, 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 iconic piece of Italian design is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle.
The overall condition is good. The keys type well and the Olivetti functions as a whole. Minor signs of use and age are present. Case’s zip does not function properly and only zips up on one side. Minor scratches on the front of the body – not displayed in the photos.
This Italian 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 Olivetti typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
