A lovely Olivetti Studio 44 working typewriter in a nice condition and made in Italy in the late 1950's. It has the usual all metal body in a seafoam green/blue colour, the Olivetti Studio 44 badge on the front and dark grey keys with a dark red tab key. This one has the standard "elite" sized type face giving you 11 letters to the inch.
This typewriter has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and fitted with a new top quality American made Universal ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.
We also include a photo copy of an original product booklet.
We can supply Universal TW38 typewriter ribbons when required from $13.90 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options. You can then put the Universal spools into the machine or rewind the new ribbon onto the Olivetti metal spools that are fitted now.
There are a few minor marks to the enamel paintwork, but generally this Studio 44 is in an excellent overall condition. It comes with a red carry case which has a handle and a clip to close. The case does have some minor marks and scratches and age related wear, but generally is also in a very good functional condition and comes with it's key for the lock. The Studio 44 model is large and fairly heavy for a portable and would perhaps be classed better as something between a portable and desk model. It measures 30 cm across at the front by 38 cm deep by 13 cm high.
If you are after something to carry around this would probably not be the best option, but if you are after a solid and well made typewriter with a great reputation then this is one to certainly consider. A perfect model for larger typing projects.
