★ Blickensderfer manufactured the world's first truly portable typewriters. They did this by eliminating unnecessary metal from the housing and replacing the typebars with an ingenious typewheel. Other than the innovative mechanical advancements, collectors enjoy their seemingly skeletal aesthetic. The keyboard of this specific typewriter features George Blickensderfer's scientific DHIATENSOR layout and celluloid key tops. The serial number dates this typewriter to ca.1910. This particular typewriter is in excellent condition. It is the Blick no.6 model in aluminum. There is no rust and overall its quite clean. Beautiful copper nameplate on the front, too. Some oxidation is present around the keys of the keyboard (common). Functionally, with this specific typewriter, the carriage advances with each keystroke, and the typewheel moves smoothly. The feed roller needs to be replaced but the machine will still pull paper through surprisingly well. Though the typewriter works and could be used to write a few lines, it is ultimately intended for collecting and not for everyday use. Clean and without any funky smells. No case available. Near Mint-to-Mint condition.

Get inspired and write something!

★ I'm always looking to buy rare or interesting typewriters and typewriter related items such as large format posters, neon clocks, sign, etc... I'm also interested in buying large collections.

★ I love typewriters! The clickety-clack of the type bars and the ding of a bell is like a symphony. Watching the springs and levers react with each keystroke is performance art. These old machines arouse and assault the senses whether they are on display or in action.
