This 1956 Royal Quiet DeLuxe Typewriter, in a beautiful, all original, glossy pink color, is perfect for adding that mid century pop of color to your home or office decor. Starting in 1955, Royal introduced a line of vibrant and exciting glossy colors for their Quiet DeLuxe model. These colorful DeLuxes only continued until 1959. This vintage pink typewriter comes with its original case and a brand new original style cotton black/red ribbon on vintage metal ribbon spools and is ready to go. So whether you're starting a 500-page novel, or just typing a quick thank-you note, you can do it in full retro pink 1950s style.

Overall, this vintage Royal Quiet DeLuxe is in very good, working condition. The pink metal body is in good condition, with some nicks to the paint here and there (most noticeable, three below space bar, one top right corner of ribbon cover, and both lower sides, as can be seen in 1st and 2nd photos). The keys are an off white/cream color, and have some slight discoloration from age and use. The back side has some scratches (as can be seen in last photo), typical wear from the typewriter being moved in and out of its case. The bare metal parts are clean with only typical minor signs of wear. The original fiberglass case (no key) with tweed covering is in good condition with some minor signs of wear and an area of discoloration on top. The case is missing its small rubber feet on the bottom, a common occurrence with these cases, but doesn't effect its function. Overall, a very nice 1956 pink typewriter.

This typewriter has been cleaned, tested, and is fully functional. Note: the small metal clips that hold the ribbon in place when typing, normally slide to the side when changing the ribbon, however, they don't slide, but you can easily thread the ribbon between the chips without sliding them when changing the ribbon. This typewriter types very nice, paper pulls in nice, carriage is smooth and all keys and bell work as they should. Just put in some paper and start clicking away!
