Typewriter, Smith Premier "Chum"

$1,195.00 AUD

 This wonderful shiny black enamel Smith Premier "Chum"  portable typewriter was made for the UK market in the late 1930's. It's basically a Remington No 3 model and in good working order and was made in the UK from imported parts from the US. It has the traditional vintage black coloured keys and red tab key with the letters and numbers in creme with silver chrome surrounds. The words "Smith Premier"  and "Chum Portable" are in gold on the top and It has the original metal spools. This one has the slightly larger "pica" sized typeface giving you 10 letters to the inch. 

There are some small marks to the enamel paintwork and some minor discolouration and fading to the decals, but generally the typewriter is in a very nice condition for its age.

The typewriter measures 24 cm wide by 29 cm deep and 8 cm high. It comes with it's original wooden carry case which is sound and functional with some small signs of wear to the leatherette covering. The latch to close works well and the leather handle. is sound  You can keep the typewriter on its base board or take it off by unscrewing 4 screws.

"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
