1940’s Early Imperial The Good Companion Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made In England
Working Imperial The Good Companion vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that this Imperial model was produced in the later half of 1940’s. Regardless of such old age, the Good Companion 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, carriage lock, 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 British 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 good. The keys type as expected and the machine works as a whole. Please note that there are signs of use and age (including some marks, minor rust and scratches) and the case is shabby as well.
This Imperial 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 typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
