Working And Serviced 1929 Underwood 4 Bank Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in USA – Glass Keys
Working Underwood Portable 4 Bank vintage, manual typewriter in London (U.K.). After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was manufactured in 1929. Coming to the age of ninety, the Underwood machine works very well! The bouncy keys in chrome rims are light and responsive when typing and it invites the typist to enjoy the typewriter endlessly. All the mechanisms and key levers function well, except the caps lock. This comfortable portable typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it, without any hassle. The typewriter is equipped with the ribbon switch mechanism, so you will be able to use only one ribbon, usually black and red , and change between these two colours. The typewriter comes with the case which has a comfortable handle.
The typewriter is serviced and ready for use. Minor signs of use and age are present. Please note that the caps lock does not work, but the shift lock works as intended.
A plethora of famous writers, such Virginia Woolf and Stephan Zweig, enjoyed the Underwood to create their well-known novels.
The typewriter will be a unique gift. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the Underwood typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It would probably to appeal to older generations of typists.
