Vintage Imperial Good Companion Model T Typewriter & Case, Good Condition
|Time Left: ||7 days 18 hours 7 min|
Fabulous old Good Companion Model T typewriter made by Imperial of Leicester and dating to the 1940's. It is finished in a dark mat grey and has a coat of arms stamped on the top to signify that it was made by Royal Appointment!
- Country/Region of Manufacture: United Kingdom
The serial number is 2GO.860 which gives its precise manufacture date of 1949.
It is in working order however would benefit from a new ribbon and an oiling to perform at its best.
I have to admit I am not an expert on these machines but it looks in wonderful condition and comes complete with its original locking clam style carry case. The key however is not present and neither are the brush, oil can or operation manual.
There are very few imperfections to point out but I should mention that the space bar has a few scratches to the front. The case is really looking very clean and the handle shows practically no signs of wear however the edges of the leather cover seams have started to come away slightly. The Imperial logo on the front is also a little worn. Please look through my photos for a full condition report. Baring in mind this is around 70 years of age it looks like it has been well cared for in its life time.
It's a really great piece of 20th century history and would look good as a display prop or to be used for letter writing in the old fashioned way of course.
