Early 1970’s Working Olivetti Dora Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case, Manual – Made in Olivetti Plant in Barcelona, Spain
Working Olivetti Dora vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the early 1970’s. Regardless of such old age, the Olivetti machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides custom-made functions for comfortable typing. The 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 originally Italian typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is excellent. The keys type without sticking and the Olivetti operates as expected. Please note that there are minor signs of use and age, specially with the case.
