Typewriter, 1949 Invicta

A wonderful and relatively rare charcoal matt black coloured Invicta typewriter made in Italy in 1949. This is in reality an Olivetti MP1 with the Invicta name and made for the UK market. It has silver chrome rimmed glass topped keys in a lovely condition, with creme letters and numbers on black and its original lovely spool tops covering two metal spools. Its designed to be used with the typewriter fixed onto its carry case base with the back of the typewriter fixed and hinged. You can lift up the front to see the underneath if you wish. This one has the slightly larger "Pica" sized type face giving you 10 letters to the inch. It types well and is in a good working condition for its age. It has the  raised " Invicta " logo in silver above the carriage as well as on the front right side.

We have given it a clean, professional service, adjusted and tested it as well as fitting a new top quality American made ribbon, so its all ready for you to take out of the box and start typing on. 

 We can supply Universal typewriter ribbons from $13.90 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range other colour options. You would then just rewind the new ribbon onto the existing metal spools.

There are a few minor marks to the paintwork, but generally it's in a wonderful condition. It measures 27 cm x 39 cm x 10 cm and comes in a black case which is also in a good condition with only some minor marks and discolouration in places . It has a working leather handle and a latch which works to close it as well as its original key for the lock. Please note you can't take the typewriter off its base board as it was designed to be used in this way.

This is a great working Italian 1940's Invicta typewriter with glass topped keys in a lovely looking design.
