A Rare Olympia Monica Typewriter with French Keyboard. It comes complete with it's box.
The AZERTY keyboard has French accent keys.
The perfect Retro office decor.
Can be used/displayed in the box or out. It come complete with it's original instruction leaflet and cleaning brush!

This typewriter is in remarkable condition, with no chips or cracks. The carriage moves freely, and all the keys move freely, making that fabulous clicking noise from "by-gone" times!

We're selling it as a decorative object, as the keys stick a bit and are slow, but it is perfectly possible that, once cleaned with alcohol and fitted with a new ribbon, it would be fully functional. We haven't any experience of typewriting, so cannot offer any advise on this.

The typewriter clips into the box base perfectly, the box has scrapes and scratches, with some missing fabric, and the catch is very loose (so it falls open), but this simply adds to it's charm and authenticity. It has the original Germany makers label on the back.

We think it's the perfect bookshelf accent piece for a 1960s home.

Boxed, it is heavy, weighing a huge 9.2kgs/ 20.2 lbs!
Box measures approx. 38cms/ 15" x 38cms/ 15" x 18cms/ 7"
Typewriter dimensions approx. 32cms/ 12½" x 31cms/ 12¼" x 11.5cms/ 4½"
