A Rare AEG Olympia "Splendid" Typewriter with French Keyboard. It comes complete with it's carry case.
The AZERTY keyboard has French accent keys.
The perfect Retro office décor.
Can be used/displayed in the box or out.
It has its original users leaflet, with a date stamped receipt of 21st August 1990 and shop address in 16430 Angoulême, France, on the back.

This typewriter is in remarkable condition, with no chips or cracks. The carriage moves freely, and all the keys function, 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 fits into the box base perfectly, the box has some delamination, marks and stains, consistent with use, but is still perfectly sturdy and comfortable to carry.

We think it's the perfect bookshelf accent piece.

In the case, it weighs 5.8kgs/ 12.8 lbs!
Case measures approx. 36cms/ 14¼" x 32cms/ 12½" x 11cms/ 4¼"
Typewriter dimensions approx. 34cms/ 13¼" x 31cms/ 12¼" x 10cms/ 4".
