Vintage Royal Quiet DeLuxe manual typewriter in bubblegum pink from 1956.

This machine has been cleaned and serviced. The rubber platen scrubed, the letter slugs individually picked clean. It types very well with no sticking keys. The carriage moves smoothly, the bell dings nicely, and paper feeds easily.

She is fitted with a BRAND NEW BLUE-RED RIBBON, so this typer is good to go!

The metal body has many small imperfections (please enlarge photos to see the pockmarks) and may have been repainted sometime during the typer’s lifetime because the finish is satin and not hi-gloss. (Price has been adjusted for this).
There is also a little paint loss on the red ROYAL logo. Otherwise, in good vintage condition. The beige plastic keys show some browning from age.

Among the features this 1956 Royal portable has is a button for popping up the ribbon cover, a ‘line meter’ that tells you how many typing lines you have left, ‘magic margin’ buttons for easy margin setting, and a touch control lever for adjusting the tension of the keys.

Another interesting feature is the typeface which is not your typical Pica or Elite, but one which Royal called ‘Book’ where the letters’ shaded face resembles printers’ type. The size is 12 characters per inch.

Approx. measurements: 11-1/2” x 11-1/2” x 5” high (excluding the return lever).
Approx. weight 12 lb. without case.

The original case has been given a cleaning and is in good vintage condition with the bakelite handle intact and a working latch (no key).

A copy of the user manual will be provided.
