The favored model of Earnest Hemingway, this popular style of vintage typewriter deserves a spot in any collection, or makes a statement standing alone.

This is the Royal Quiet Deluxe manual portable typewriter. The serial number dates this machine to 1946. I love the black body with its shiny silver accents. The round keys have such a classic, antique look. The black case is included and a cute little Royal brush. This piece measures 12" x 10" x 5" without the case.

This piece is in good vintage condition. All of the keys type well, the carriage glides, and the lovely bell dings at the end of the line. The only problem I ran into while typing was that the little piece that guides the ribbon onto the page lifts up with the ribbon and covers the print so you can't see what you are typing. The ribbon has a little life in it, but will soon need to be replaced.

It also looks nice aesthetically. There are some scratches on the front bar and a few others here and there but none very noticeable. There is some residue from a label on the top. The case works great but its exterior shows more signs of wear including scuffs, scratches and marks.

I have described this item thoroughly to the best of my knowledge, but please keep in mind that it has not been professionally serviced, nor am I an expert in typewriters. The piece is sold "as-is".

Thanks so much for looking! Please convo me with any questions and check out the rest of my vintage Etsy shop at flyingace.etsy.com.
