Typewriter, Olivetti Studio 42

£445.00 GBP

 A lovely charcoal black coloured Olivetti Studio 42  typewriter made in Italy and assembled in the Olivetti Glasgow factory in the mid 1950's. It has silver chrome rimmed glass topped keys in a lovely condition, with dark creme letters and numbers on black and a red tab key. This one types well and is in a good working condition. It has the  raised " Olivetti " logo in silver on the carriage, as well as the glass panel to the front of the typewriter which has the Studio 42 logo and Olivetti's manufacturers details. It has the standard Olivetti elite sized typeface giving you 12 letters to the inch and the original selling agents logo in red on the right hand side.

It types very well with a light touch. We have given it a professional clean, service, adjusted and tested it and fitted a new top quality American made ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.

We can supply Universal typewriter ribbons when required from £7.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and in a range of coloured options. These can be dropped in or you can rewind the new ribbon onto the metal spools in the machine.

There are a few minor marks and some discolouration to the matt charcoal black paintwork metal body and some minor paint loss next to the two silver "T's" on the Olivetti logo on the carriage. It measures 27 cm x 34 cm x 12 cm and comes in a black case which is also in a good functional condition with some minor marks and discolouration in places. It  has a working leather handle and the latch works to close it. Please note that the carriage lock has at some point been removed so the carriage cannot be locked when in transit.

This is a classic and good working Italian 1950's Olivetti typewriter with glass topped keys.

"My Olivetti arrived a couple days ago. Got a chance to test it out and it works like a dream (you wouldn’t guess it was nearly half a century old). Thank you for including the original metal spools, it adds a great touch to the machine. Looking forward to adding another typewriter to the collection sometime soon..." - Jake
