The Olivetti Valentine was designed in 1969 by Ettore Sottsass to be the antithesis of typewriters, the "anti-machine" of writing machines. This typewriter was not meant to be placed in the dulling confines of a cubicle. Instead, its lightweight modern design was ideal for cosmopolitan travelers, poets who were inspired in cafes, and writers who enjoyed composing on the beach.

Made in the Olivetti Plant in Barcelona, Spain, the Valentine is considered to be one of the smoothest, easy touch writing machines. Sit down in front of this work of modern design, and inspiration pours from your fingertips to the paper with grace and ease.

This Olivetti Valentine is in excellent working condition. Each typewriter key strikes perfectly, the carriage and paper roller move smoothly, and it is ready to serve your literary endeavors with dedication! As with all vintage Valentines, there are very minor scuffs along the top and edges where the typewriter fits into the case.

The typewriter comes with its original signature carrying case, complete with its original latches, which are in amazing condition for its age. There are minor scuff marks on the bottom of the exterior case.

This machine is in perfect working order. It has been cleaned, oiled and a brand new ribbon installed.
