1960’s Working Olivetti Lettera 32 Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case, Typing Paper, Eraser
Working Olivetti Lettera 32 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the late 1960’s. Regardless of such old age, the Olivetti machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The carriage return lever, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guides and the paper release lever all work as intended. This iconic Italian 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 case which has a comfortable handle.
Please note that this Olivetti model has been in a house fire and has significant cosmetic damage on the body and the case. However the machine works as expected. All of the letter keys work and the Olivetti Lettera 32 types well. The bell does not work all the time.

Due to the style and the aesthetics of the Olivetti typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
