1920’s Working Royal Model P Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Black
Working Royal Model P vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the late 1920’s. Regardless of such old age, the 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, 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 American 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.The letter keys work as expected and the machine functions well as a whole. When testing it out, I noticed that sometimes when typing in all capitals, the carriage would stop and the following letter would type on top of the previous one. This only happens when the shift is enabled and not that often. Other signs of use and age are present.
This intriguing manual word processor 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 black Royal typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
