1940’s Working Imperial The Good Companion Model T Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Specialised Keyboard
Working Imperial Good Companion Model T vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1940’s. Regardless of such old age, the Imperial black 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, 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.
Please note that this model of the Imperial Good Companion has a different keyboard – on the right hand side of the keyboard, there is delta, square brackets, plus, accent etc keys. This is not normally the case with other typewriters of the same make, perhaps it was used for scientific literature.
The overall condition is good. The Imperial Model T types well and works as intended. Some of the keys on the right hand side can stick at times. Minor signs of use and age are present.
The Good Companion Model T 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 black Imperial typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
