This is the stunning Olivetti Valentine Typewriter. <3<3

In 1969, Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass Jr. designed this beautiful pop art inspired industrial typewriter, THE OLIVETTI VALENTINE. This design icon is featured in NYC at the MOMA and in Londons Design Museum. I have read you can also find it in almost every reference book on 20th Century design.

Measures about 14" x 13.5" x 4" in case.

This Valentine seems to be in beautiful working condition. I am no typewriter expert but I did test out all the keys which seem to all be working. As with all vintage Valentines, this typewriter has minor scuffing to the top and logo, where the typewriter rubs against the case when stowed. There are some scuffs on the case. I do think that whoever initially installed the ribbon has it in upside down, but I didn't want to switch it because there is about 3/4 ribbon unused. If purchased and planning to use, might be worth a service for this amazing typewriter.
