What A Treasure! The 1938 Junior Empire Typewriter! Made In Switzerland! Excellent Condition!


London Typewriters are delighted to offer for sale another unique find in the typewriter world – the Junior Empire typewriter. This charming typewriter was made in 1938, in Switzerland.

Yes, the Junior Empire typewriter was made in Switzerland and resembles the features of the Swiss Hermes 2000 or Hermes Media typewriters. However, the British Empire Typewriters Ltd held the licence of the Hermes typewriter to be distributed in the British market under the name of Junior Empire.

So, what makes this typewriter so exceptional?

Firstly, the green emerald keys (the human eye sees the green colour better than any other colour according to sources on the Internet); they are round in shape with a concave top for better positioning of the fingertips.

Secondly, the keys are light to type with, which is an important criteria when choosing a typewriter for regular use.

The chroming features are retained, untouched with time and use which certifies the Swiss quality of typewriter manufacturing.

The typist will be able to choose between three line spacing settings and type with either black or red ink ribbon at a time. The margins can be set and released with two options. Also, the option to type in table format is available on this model. Paper support is in-built to enable the typist to see the whole page of the typed text. Finally, nothing can replace a sweet β€˜Ding’ sound from the bell, at the end of each line.

The Junior Empire comes with a new black ink ribbon and two original metal spools. The original case provided has a sturdy handle.

The overall condition is excellent for this 80 years old typewriter. Minor signs of age and use are present.

The Junior Empire would be suitable for a typist of any profession and typing skill. It would be a valuable addition to any enthusiast’s typewriter collection. It would also be a talking point at any thematic event or a business desk.
