This Royal portable Model A was made in the US in 1935 and is in a lovely shiny black enamel colour . It is in a very good condition for its age with only a few very minor marks and signs of wear and touch ups to the paintwork mainly at the front corners . It has the old classic style glass topped keys with silver chrome surrounds in a black colour with vintage dark creme coloured letters and numbers .These are all in a very good condition. This one has the slightly larger " Pica " font size so types with 10 letters to the inch. Please also note that in some of our images there is some reflection of the map from behind on the black enamel of the typewriter.
It has the Royal logo on the carriage and the front as well as the Royal logo and manufacturers patients details on the back .The silver chrome work is also in a nice functional condition although now a little faded in some places. The rubber feet are slightly worn mainly at the back but totally functional.
Its a very nice compact size being 27 cms wide x 28 cms deep x 11 cms high .
This typewriter has been professionally serviced , cleaned , adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and fitted with a new Group 9 ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on !
We can supply Group 9 typewriter ribbons at $12.50 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black, blue and purple . A ribbon will last you a long time and to give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months.
There is a wooden carry case with leatherette covering which is also in a good functional condition with some general marks and signs of wear .It has 2 working metal clasp closures and the original handle which is sound but does show some signs of wear. The spring in the left hand metal closure does not now work but it still closes and opens correctly. You can keep the typewriter on it's base board or take it off by sliding the 4 clips to unlock the feet.
This is a highly collectable 1935 vintage typewriter in a classic black enamel colour with glass topped keys and would make a wonderful and special gift . We also include a copy of an original manual .
