Typewriter , Olivetti Dora

A lovely pale grey coloured working Olivetti Dora typewriter from the 1970's and made in Spain . The Olivetti Dora was designed by Ettore Sottsass who also designed the Olivetti Valentine so there are a lot of similarities in style between the Dora and Valentine. It has the Olivetti Dora logo on the ribbon cover and types well with a nice easy touch and has the standard  " Elite " sized font giving you 12 letters to the inch.

With this one we include our "Stay Home Starter Kit" which includes some sheets of carbon paper, a few tabs of tippex papers in a vintage ribbon container, a typewriter brush, some sheets of light typewriter paper, a touch typing chart and some airmail envelopes. This will perhaps been useful in helping particularly younger typists with their creative and letter writing activities.

This typewriter has been professionally cleaned ,serviced, adjusted and tested . It is in full working order and is fitted with a new Group 4 ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on !

We can supply Group 4 typewriter ribbons from $12.50 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of Universal ribbons in other colour options. 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 . 

We also include a two page photocopy of an original instruction card .The light grey plastic body is in a very good general condition with just some minor discolouration in places.It comes with the standard Olivetti green coloured vinyl case which is functional and provides you with a handle to carry it . There are some marks and discolouration mainly on the inside and it has been taped at the back edge on both the inside and the outside.

 The typewriter measures 29 cms across by 33 cms deep and is 8.5 cms high . 

This is a good working typewriter with a nice easy typing action.
