This lovely shiny black enamel Remington Home portable typewriter was made in England in 1937 from parts imported from the US . It's in full working order and in a good condition. It has the traditional black coloured keys with silver chrome surrounds and the letters and numbers in creme .The words " Remington " and "Home Portable " can be seen on the top left and right in gold . It has the wording above the carriage regarding that it was assembled in London from imported parts . It was made to a price to maintain competitiveness at the time so comes with only a left hand margin , has no bell and you cannot use a red and black ribbon with this model , only plain colours. This model has the slightly larger " Pica " sized font giving you 10 letters to the inch.
We have given it a clean , professional service , adjusted and tested it as well as fitting a new ribbon . Group 1 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from many online suppliers or we can supply you with new ribbons when required . You would then rewind the new ribbon onto the existing metal spools. 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 have lasted them around three months.
The typewriter measures 25 cms wide by 28 cms deep and 10 cms high . The enamel paintwork is a very good original condition with just a few marks and signs of small touch ups mainly at the front edge . The typewriter comes with a covered wooden case which is a good condition for its age . The original handle has been lost and we have fitted a new leather handle. The latch to close is sound and works well.
This is a fabulous looking 1930's vintage portable typewriter with its black enamel finish and it would make a wonderful display item as well as being ready to take out of the box and start typing on. We also include a copy of an original manual.
