This Hermes Baby typewriter was made in Switzerland in 1965 and is in a wonderful pale pastel green colour with mint green keys , space bar and carriage knobs. Hermes typewriters were designed and made in Switzerland by Paillard before production moved to Germany and then to Brazil . They have a good reputation as wonderfully engineered and made machines, as you would expect from the Swiss. Hermes Baby models were originally the smallest typewriters on the market and enjoyed a loyal following .This one is in full working order and types well . We have given it a service, clean , adjusted and tested it and fitted a new ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on !
GR 9 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from many online suppliers or we can supply you with new ribbons when required . They generally cost around $10 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 last them around 3 months.
It is in a good general condition with just a few minor marks to the metal body. In particular the left front base and right front bar. It has the Hermes Baby logo on the front left side and manufacturers details on the back.
It comes with a case in a matching pastel green which clips down over the typewriter providing you with a handle . The clips and handle work well . The case is in a good functional condition with just a few small marks and some general discolouration mainly on the inside. The typewriter measures 29 cms by 30 cms by 6.5 cms high.
If you want a smaller portable typewriter in a fabulous colour that doesn't take up too much desk space this is a great option . We include a photo copy of an original instruction booklet which shows the features and has many handy tips such as how the change the ribbon.
