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.
