Typewriter, 1939 Remington Home Portable

 This lovely black enamel Remington Home portable typewriter was made in England in 1939 from parts imported from the US . It's in full working order and in a good condition. It has the traditional vintage off white coloured keys with silver chrome surrounds and the letters and numbers in black  .The words " Remington  " and "Home Portable " can be seen on the top left and right in gold  . It has the wording above the carriage indicating 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.

This typewriter has been professionally cleaned ,serviced, adjusted and tested . It is in working order and is fitted with a new  ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on . We also include a photo copy of a Remington  Portable instruction manual .

New typewriter ribbons can be purchased from us and cost £4.95 including  postage . You can purchase any manual typewriter ribbon for this machine and rewind the new ribbon onto its original metal spools . We have plain black or other plain colour options available .

The typewriter measures 25 cm wide by 28 cm deep and 10 cm high . The enamel  paintwork is in a good original condition with just a few marks and signs of small touch ups and signs of fading in some areas. The typewriter  comes with a covered wooden case which is a good condition for its age . It has lost its original handle so we have fashioned a new one. The latch to close is sound and works well.

This is a fabulous looking 1930's vintage portable typewriter with its lovely off white keys 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.
