I love the colour scheme of this machine. Very nice find! These machines seem to be very thin on the ground.
It's a lovely one!Yes, a true needle in a haystack.
Hearty congratulations!If I had to criticize this model (in order to keep the Hunt for the Perfect Typewriter going), I would point out its flimsy-feeling carriage return lever made of molded sheet metal. If it had a big, solid Voss-style lever, it would feel better.
Yeah, it isn't the most elegant of return levers. But it's perfectly suitable—we're really trying hard to complain at this point. :D
Grand images (as always :)Shows I think the link with especially automotive styling of the period. Gleaming black curves in the thirties to two-tone sleekness of the late fifties/early 60-ies.
Thanks. :)Design of any one type of objects is rarely restricted, rather a style from an era is reflected in most designs!
Glad I stumbled upon your post. Judging from the pictures, it looks like my Erika is a model 20. Of course with a Danish keyboard. Brown and beige - just like in the brochure. Its a wonderful typing machine. And it has a nice sound to it as well.
Very nice! I'd love to see it, if you could email me at the address found on my contact page here.
I'm guessing you prefer the heavier Erikas over the compact versions such as the Modell S and Erika 9?
I like all of them, really!
