1930’s Working Royal Model O Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Black
Working Royal Model O vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the late 1930’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.
Please note that the typewriter for sale actually has a cork platen instead of standard rubber. Apart from that, there are very minor differences. The colour, design and keyboard are still the same as shown in the photos.
The overall condition is excellent. All of the letter keys type well and the machine functions as expected. Minor 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.
