A fascinating specimen indeed. This vintage Royal Aristocrat typewriter features a duo-tone body with a vibrant teal ribbon cover and taupe crinkle paint base. Bright and stylish and begging to be displayed!

The typewriter measures approximately 12"l by 12 1/2"d by 5"h. It features gold accents on the plate behind the keys and the paper table. The keys are a shade of taupe, blending with the base of the machine. Super retro!

Although it is labeled a Royal Aristocrat, the body style more closely resembles the 1950s Royal Futura line. A bit of a mystery, I suppose!

The typewriter is in great aesthetic condition, with just some very light wear to the taupe crinkle paint base, as shown in the photos. There is some additional wear on the back of the machine as well, including the original owner's name written upside down

The typewriter works well. The carriage return moves smoothly and lets off a satisfying "ding" at the end of each line. No keys seemed sticky in my testing. It will need a fresh new ribbon if you plan to use it functionally.

The typewriter sits contently in a hard-shell caramel brown vinyl box case, which it locks into to secure it. The case shows a tad bit of cosmetic wear including some splotches of white paint, but is structurally sound and latches closed securely.

Please note, this machine has not been serviced by me nor examined by a typewriter expert while in my ownership. I give my typewriters a good surface cleaning but essentially sell them as-is, thus am able to offer them for much less than other sites like www.mytypewriter.com for example, where the machines are restored by professional technicians and examined for any necessary repairs. Feel free to ask any questions and I will do my best to answer them.

The typewriter will be packed and shipped with great care, and insured against loss or damage.
