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 . It has the usual all metal casing and is in a blue/green enamel colour with charcoal grey coloured keys. This model was made in Glasgow rather than in Spain, Italy or Mexico and has the Olivetti branding on the right side of the carriage and the Lettera 22 logo on top of the ribbon cover .It has the standard " elite " sized font size so types with 11 letters to the inch.
This one works and types very well with a light touch and is in a very good overall condition with just a few light surface scratches on the top of the ribbon cover.
This typewriter has been professionally serviced , cleaned , adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and 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 £4.95 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.
It comes with a standard Olivetti case which has a working zip and handle . There are a few very minor marks to the case and signs of wear but generally its a good condition for its age . We also include a photo copy of a Lettera 22 instruction manual .
This is a nice working Lettera 22 and with a service and new ribbon is already for you to take out of the box and start typing on !
