I have another super chic typewriter for sale today! As you know, I just love seeing them featured in weddings – they’re perfect for writing love notes (and adding a smooch like I did in this shoot!); serving as guestbooks; or creating a fun kids station.) Today, I’m sharing one of my favorites that I scooped up while antiquing in my favorite country in the world – Fraaaance. The heart-melting shade of Tiffany blue was calling to me as soon as my eyes found it at the French market!
About the typewriter:
This is a gorgeous Smith-Corona portable typewriter dating back to around the 1960s. The painted metal casing is a delightful shade of blue, as you can see! The typewriter comes with its original hard carrying cover/case (shown below) and has a cute handle that makes transporting a cinch.
This deliciously retro typewriter is in excellent vintage condition and has no chips or cracks. The only visible wear is a few small scuff marks on the carrying case from use but overall, it is in superb condition. All keys are working but a few are sticking a bit – I think after a little bit of use they would work just fine. The typewriter measures approximately 12″ x 11″ x 3″.
Note: Because this is a European typewriter, the keys are in a different layout than American typewriters. However, all keys are fully functioning. Also, the typewriter ribbon has dried out a little bit so it will probably need to be replaced with a fresh universal ribbon to produce crisp letters. The current ribbon is still working but the ink is slowly fading.
