Working Vintage 1950s Olivetti Studio 44 Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Italy
Working Olivetti Studio 44 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London (U.K.) After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was made in the 1950s. Regardless of its age, the machine works very well! The sturdy keys are solid and provide assurance to the typist during use. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, margin setters, ribbon colour switch, the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. In addition, it has a dial to enable the typist to adjust the key touch response to suit their own preference. This Italian made typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon and is ready for immediate use. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is excellent. All of the keys type as expected. Minor signs of use and age are present.
This sophisticated Italian machine would really be ideal for professional writers as it is solidly built and robust enough for long writing projects. It will also be a unique gift. Due to the style and aesthetics of the Olivetti Studio typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It would probably appeal to an older generation of experienced typists.
