Stunning Blue/Green Shade
Empire 1959

This adorable, little Smith-Corona Empire ultraportable typewriter is identical in design to the Hermes Rocket/Baby, which was extremely popular with traveling writers. This was designed by Hermes for Smith-Corona. Manufactured by British Typewriters Limited. Made in England. The operational manual is present.
This typewriter is in lovely condition with a minor ding to the left corner (see pic 2). The keys all work and the bell does its thing. The w and u got stuck a couple of times. Possibly a cleaning or just using would take care of this. This is really compact and so easy to carry. The leather case is tear and rip free, but does have usage marks. The ribbon still has a little juice, but it is on the faint side. A new ribbon would be on the must for this piece.

The typewriter measures 11" wide x 11 1/2" deep, x 2 3/4" tall. The low profile look is super sleek:)
Enjoy and feel free to convo with questions.
