This Maritsa 11 red portable manual typewriter types like a charm. All the features are working flawlessly. The keys are plastic and the body is red painted metal. No major dents, or scratches; only minor wear to the paint from the carriage return lever and the back (where the case secures). Sleek Bulgarian design and function combined created the typing feel of a nice weighty desktop typewriter in a portable form. And don't you love the red color combo, we've never seen one anywhere else, ever!

A Bulgarian state owned company manufactured many variants for different customers starting in the mid 1950s. We do not know exactly where the red variant originated. Most likely they were imported by a major retailer like Montgomery Wards or Sears. There is little evidence of any branding or makers mark, we assume this one came unbadged because there is no evidence of a missing logo. Many thanks to Machinesoflovinggrace for the education; read more about this typewriter's history here - http://machinesoflovinggrace.com/ptf/bulgaria.html

Included with every typewriter purchase is one FREE brand new black typewriter ribbon, because we want you typing away in no time! Please check our shop if you need typewriter ribbons! We have Blue, Purple, Brown and Green typewriter ribbons available.

Your typewriter has been personally serviced, cleaned and tested by us and is in working order as described. See photos for exact condition details. We carefully ship all our typewriters with Tracking and Insurance.
