1950’s Working Olivetti Studio 42 – New Ribbon, Case – Glass Keys – Painted Black – Made In Italy
Working Olivetti Studio 42 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the early 1950’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works very well! 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 Italian 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.
This particular model was sprayed black as the original paint was chipping off.
The overall condition is excellent. All of the keys type as expected. Though please note that the case does not have a lock. Other signs of use and age are present. Minor misalignment at places as well.
This intriguing Italian 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 Olivetti Studio typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
