Rare 1935 Triumph Portable Typewriter In Working Condition – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Germany
Rare vintage 1935 Triumph portable typewriter is one more brand of typewriter, built with precision and endurance from the German machine industry.
In the late 1920s the German bicycle, motorcycle and typewriter manufacturer, Triumph Werke Nurnberg A.G. received a contract to provide the German postal service with typewriters. This led to the mass production of this model. Later, the biggest export market for this robust typewriter was to Russia, Italy and Argentina.
Taking into account such a milestone, the typewriter offered for sale has preserved all its functions and, cosmetically looks neat. The solid metal rim keys with glass (to prevent the letter symbol from wearing off), are smooth and comfortable and give a sense of stability and sturdiness to the typist.
The typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon and it is ready for action. Also comes with the re-upholstered case which has a comfortable handle.
This eighty-seven year old typewriter is in good working order. Minor signs of age and use are present – please refer to photos.
Ian Fleming used the Triumph (a later modified model) typewriter to write his famous novels.
The Triumph typewriter would be an inspiring model to authors and writers. Due to its sleek and glossy look, it would make an attractive centrepiece at a wedding, exhibition, office or home. It would also be an ideal present.
