This perfect retro green Hermes 3000 vintage typewriter exudes the ultimate style. Ready to take any literary project to the next level, this vintage typewriter from the 1950s absolutely inspires!

Whereas other retailers commonly sell this same model for $495 or more, Poetic Home is dedicated to bringing you stunning vintage treasures at quite affordable prices!

Feature for feature, the Hermes 3000 was one of the most sophisticated manual portable ever made. Its major innovations included the world's first lightning margins (visible in front of the sheet of paper), a control board grouping all the service keys, and integrated base plate and cover to facilitate handling and carrying.

It is much more than a versatile all-around typewriter. It is designed for office use, too, with many features common to office machines but seldom found in portables. Its ease of handling and clarity of type make it the ideal personal typewriter for writers and executives. Its compactness and lightweight turn the Hermes 3000 into the ultimate in students portables. For its versatility, performance and durability, the Hermes 3000 is regarded by many to be the one of finest portable typewriters in the world.

You have the option of switching ribbon colors, from black to red to blue. Indeed, sitting at the typewriter is a wonderful throwback to times where we lived gentler, more poetic lives.

The Hermes typewriter is in good, operational condition. This typewriter does have some personality, however. When you type and near the halfway mark of the page, the bell will sound, and then you have to press the dual-arrow button to continue typing. This quirky element is part of the vintage charm of this piece :) Everything else works perfectly! There are a few nicks and scratches, but this is a beautiful piece of chic machinery.

The Hermes 3000 also comes with its original hardcover fiberglass carrying case.
