Working 1950’s Olympia Elite Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Black – Made in Germany


Fully working Olympia Elite vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced during the early 1950’s. Regardless of such old age, the German made machine works very well!Β  The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. 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 sturdy Olympia 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 wooden case which has a comfortable handle.

The overall condition is excellent. It types well and it is generally clean. Minor cosmetic signs of use and age are present on the typewriter. Using the caps lock leads to misalignment. Please note that the lock of the case has been damaged and removed, we have arranged a belt to keep the base and the top together.

The black retro 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 Olympia EliteΒ typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.

The Olympia Elite vintage typewriter is located in London, UK.
