The Olivetti Lettera 22 was designed in Italy in 1950 by Marcello Nizzoli and proved to be extremely popular throughout the 1950's winning numerous design awards . It was very portable for the time as it measures 30 cms x 30 cms x 8 cms high . This one is in a fabulous and original salmon pink enamel colour making it rare and highly sought after .It has charcoal keys , space bar and carriage knobs and was made in the Olivetti Glasgow factory in Scotland .
It works and types well and is in a good condition with just some minor marks , mainly at the front left and right hand corners and the front corners where the ribbon cover joins. We have given it a clean ,service, adjusted and tested it and fitted a new ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on !
Group 4 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from many online suppliers or we can supply you with new ribbons when required . They generally cost around $12.50 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 comes with a standard Olivetti carry case which does have some discolouration and marks on both the inside and outside . There are 2 zips and two handles which all work well . We also include a photocopy of an original Lettera 22 instruction manual with a run down of all its features and some typing tips .
This is a very nice working Lettura 22 in a fabulous and rare colour and with a service and new ribbon is already for you to take out of the box and start typing on !
