Antique Typewriter Remington Typewriter Remette Home Decor

This Remington Remette is in wonderful condition. I love my vintage and antique typewriters and this one is sooo cool! It is really low profile and light. The typewriter secures to the case with screws that are easily unscrewed to release the machine. All the keys are in good working order with no sticking. The ribbon will need to either be reinked or replaced. Here is a fabulous ehow on reinking:


This info is taken from
Remette / Rem-ette (July 1938-Apr. 1942)
This writing machine uses the same geared typebar mechanism as the portable #3 and #5. Its body is sheet metal painted with gray or black wrinkle paint. It originally cost $29.75, and Remington records say it was introduced "to meet Corona Zephyr," another cheap machine. Some more cryptic comments from the Remington records: "Serial with CQ means quintuple keyboard; CR210125 first machine with ratchet release lever." (CQ254462 includes 3 dead keys for accents.) European name variant: Smith Premier Primette. Two special versions of the Remette were made for the 1939 World's Fair: (1) "World's Fair blue" paint with an orange stripe and the fair's logo in a corner; (2) black paint, no stripe, with the logo.

Case Measurements: 12 x 12 1/2 x 5
