Magnificent, Original And Unique Remington Porto-Rite Typewriter Of Early 1930s – New Ribbon, Case – Made In USA
London Typewriters are elated to be able to present for sale a spectacular Remington Porto-Rite typewriter of early 1930s vintage, which was built with excellence, in the USA. Porto-Rite stands for a portable writer, and this machine truly matches the description in terms of compatibility and lightness of the typewriter.
The Porto-Rite works exquisitely well. All the mechanisms are intact and the light keys work smooth and type evenly, this makes the whole typing process enjoyable and effortless. At the end of every line there is an exciting ‘Ding’ sound letting you know to move to the next line.
There is a new black ink ribbon installed and the Porto-Rite is ready for business. A complementary black/red ribbon will be provided. When wishing to use a different colour, the ribbon colour switch needs to be engaged and moved manually from one colour to another. The original case comes with this machine, which has a comfortable handle.
It is worth noting that the design of the Porto-Rite allows the keys to fold. Also, the metal rim keys are protected with glass to prevent the letters from wearing-off. It is amazing that the quality of chrome detailing is still almost intact, unaffected with age and use.
Overall condition is excellent. The typewriter works as intended and the keys work without sticking. Minor signs of age and use are present. Please note that London Typewriters has decided not to overpaint the typewriter and leave it truly original, even tough there are some signs of previous use given the typewriter’s age – please refer to photos.
The Remington Porto-Rite is an excellent choice of typewriter for any professional or a connoisseur collector. It would be a great addition to any collection. The typewriter is suitable to be used by typists with any level of typing skills and abilities from new beginners to experienced professionals.
Enjoy the Remington Porto-Rite
