Typewriter Imperial Good Companion 3 portable

Imperial typewriters were made in Leicester in England and the Good Companion model was first launched in 1932 . It was named after J. B. Priestley's book "The Good Companions"  which had been published at the same time and the collaboration with Priestley helped sell a huge number of Imperial typewriters.

This model is a number 3  and was made in the early 1950's in England and has a metal body in a gunmetal grey colour in a smooth finish . It has grey letter and number keys and dark green shift function  keys which are all in a good condition. It has "Manufactured by the Imperial Typewriter Company Ltd Leicester England" on the back and the "Imperial" logo and Royal Warrant crest with "By Appointment to the late King George V"  at the front . It also has the early English selling agents sticker on the right hand side.

It is in a very good general condition with just a few minor marks to the paintwork mainly at the front bar and the back right hand corner . The silver chrome work is also in a nice condition. It types well and we have fitted a brand new ribbon as well as giving it a clean, service, adjusting and testing it so its all ready for you to take out of the box and start typing on 

Universal GR1 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. This one has original metal spools so you would rewind the ribbon onto these.

It comes with a smart brown coloured case which is also in a nice condition with just minor marks and wear to the inside and outside . The typewriter is attached onto its base board by a clip located at each side which you just slide if you want to use it off the board. The case has a working latch and handle .

We do also include a photocopy of an original instruction booklet .

 The typewriter measures 28cms by 30 cms by 11 cms high and the case is 34 cms by 34 cms and 12 cms high .

This is a wonderful 1950's Mad Men style typewriter in a fabulous industrial colour, Royal Warrant crest to the front , nice portable size and in very good working order  .

Delivery  anywhere within Australia is included in the price.
