Typewriter, 1959 Hermes Baby portable

 This Hermes Baby typewriter was made in Switzerland in 1959 and is in a wonderful pale pastel green colour with 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 . 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 is in full working order and types well .It has the standard "elite" sized type giving you 12 letters to the inch . 

This typewriter has been professionally cleaned ,serviced, adjusted and tested . It is in full working order and is fitted with a new Group 9 ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on ! Please note you can't use a two tone ribbon with this typewriter , only plain single colours .

We can supply Group 9 typewriter ribbons at $12.50 each including postage. Available in plain black and a range of other plain colours in a Universal ribbon. 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 . 

It is in a good general condition with just some discolouration to the metal body and some marks to the paintwork mainly at the front left hand side , the back from the carry case lid .It also has some wear to the right hand end of the space bar but this does not affect the functionality at all . 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 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 .
