This Hermes Baby typewriter was made in Switzerland in 1960 and is in a wonderful pale pastel green colour with small "crinkle" finish, mint green keys, space bar and carriage knobs. The ribbon spools are accessed by the two " gull winged " covers that fold back. Hermes typewriters were designed and made in Switzerland by Paillard before production moved to France and then to Brazil. Hermes Baby models were originally the smallest typewriters on the market and enjoyed a loyal following. This is in full working order and types well. It has the standard "elite" sized typeface giving you 13 letters to the inch.
Please note this model only types with a one colour ribbon. You can't use a two tone ribbon such as blacl and red with this one.
This typewriter has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and is fitted with a new top quality American made Group 9 TW1 ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.
We can supply Group 9 and Universal typewriter ribbons from $13.90 each including postage. Available in plain black and a range of other plain colour options on Universal spools.
It is in a very good general condition with just some marks to the paintwork mainly at the left hand side and at the back from where the carry case lid has rubbed over the years. 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 colour 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 to the inside and outside. The typewriter measures 29 cm by 30 cm by 6.5 cm 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 to change the ribbon.
