Rare 1920’s Working Kenbar (Rheinmetall) Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon – Glass Keys – Serviced
Working Kenbar (Rheinmetall) antique, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1920’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works very well! We have extensively tested this machine and all of the basic functionalities work as expected.
The decals at the front say that it was produced by Rheinmetall in Germany for John Barker & Co. Ltd. London.
The overall condition is excellent. The keys type well and only few stick at times. There are signs of use and age present – to be expected for a 100 year old machine!
You can use it for display purposes and as this is a working machine, you can also use it for typing notes, poems, letters and so on.
The antique Kenbar (Rheinmetall) typewriter is based in London, UK.
