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 cm x 30 cm x 8 cm high . It has the usual all metal casing and is in a lovely and rare light pistachio green colour and with round black keys . This model was made in 1957 in Olivetti's Glasgow factory rather than in Italy ,Spain or Mexico and has the silver Olivetti branding on the right side of the carriage and the Lettera 22 badge on the top of the ribbon cover . This one has a different colour to the carriage and would have been it's original colour .
It types very well with a light touch and is in a very good overall condition . We have given it a professional service , clean , adjusted and tested it and fitted a new ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on .
