1933 Remington Home Portable

$0.00 AUD

 This lovely shiny black enamel Remington Home portable typewriter was made in England in 1933 from parts imported from the US . It's in full working order and in a  good condition. It has the traditional off white coloured keys with silver chrome surrounds and the letters and numbers in black  .It has the words " Remington  " on the carriage and "Home Portable " on the top right front in gold  . It has the wording behind the keys regarding that it was assembled in London from imported parts . It was made to a price to maintain competitiveness at the time so comes with only a left hand margin , has no bell and you cannot use a red and black ribbon with this model , only plain colours. This model has the slightly larger " Pica " sized font giving you 10 letters to the inch.

We have given it a clean , professional service , adjusted and tested it as well as fitting a new ribbon .  Group 1 and Universal plain coloured typewriter ribbons can be purchased from us when required . You would then rewind the new ribbon onto the existing metal spools. They are priced from  $12.50 including postage . However a ribbon will last you a long time . To give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would have lasted  them around three  months.

The typewriter measures 25 cms wide by 28 cms deep and 10 cms high . The enamel  paintwork is a very good original condition with just a few marks and signs of small touch ups . The typewriter  comes with a covered wooden case which is a good condition for its age . It has its original leather which does show signs of wear. The latch to close is sound and works well and this one has the wording " Made in England " on the inside which is rare.

This is a fabulous looking 1930's vintage portable typewriter with its black enamel finish and it would make a wonderful display item as well as being ready to take out of the box and start typing on. We also include a copy of an original manual.

"My Olivetti arrived a couple days ago. Got a chance to test it out and it works like a dream (you wouldn’t guess it was nearly half a century old). Thank you for including the original metal spools, it adds a great touch to the machine. Looking forward to adding another typewriter to the collection sometime soon..." - Jake
