Vintage 1963 Olivetti Studio 44 Typewriter Light Blue - Working with Brand-New Ribbon

114.99

Olivetti typewriters are celebrated for their design, and on the Studio 44, the design is the first thing you notice. The ridges on the front of the machine, the lines - a gorgeous typewriter! Great robin's egg blue color.

Cosmetically, this typewriter is in good shape, with little noticeable cosmetic wear. Comes with original paperwork (including manual), which even notes that this machine was sold in 1963 in St. Joseph, Missouri!

Mechanically, this model is working, with freshly-oiled keys and a brand-new ribbon installed. That said, this typewriter has been sitting for many years in a garage, and grime has accumulated in its keys. Thus, it does have some sticking keys - particularly the 'e', 'y', 'd', and 'h' keys. With regular use this should ease, however, this should definitely be noted by a new owner. Price reflects these condition issues.

Comes with its original case and key. Approximately 11.5"L x 15"W x 6"H (not including case).

According to the original manual (found here: http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/olivettistudio44.pdf), this typewriter is portable, but built for those who need something a little larger and sturdier for professional needs. Made at the Olivetti plant in Italy.

I base my typewriter prices on condition of typewriter, and desirability factors including color, condition, typeface, and rarity. I pack well using packing peanuts to ensure a smooth, gentle ride for your new machine.
