RESERVED! 1955 Triumph Tippa Typewriter in Cream-colour
  • RESERVED! 1955 Triumph Tippa Typewriter in Cream-colour


    This beautiful, cream-coloured typewriter comes from the famous german spa town of Bad Kissingen where it was probably used in a health spa. It is a rare, super-portable Triumph Tippa B Necessaire model from 1955. It is a beautiful cream colour that is exceptionally unusual. This typewriter has been fully restored, cleaned, lubricated and adjusted. It is incredibly slim and light and is wonderful to use and absolutely lovely to look at! A lovely combination of inspired mid-century industrial design and German engineering! 

    This typewriter is in fine cosmetic condition and working perfectly. The Triumph Tippa logo is bright and shiny. All the chrome is in excellent condition. The keytops are in excellent condition. The finish is in very fine condition with only a few signs of use or wear. 

    Mechanically this Tippa is in top working condition. Everything works as it should and as originally designed. The rubber on the platen roller is in fine condition with a durometer reading of 93-94 (Ideal being between 85-95). The paper feed rollers are in excellent condition. The only tiny flaw is a crack in the right side carriage knob. This has been inspected and the knob is still strong and solid--and, of course, covered by our mechanical guarantee, so no worries there.

    The keyboard is QWERTY with keys for various European languages. The typeface is Pica (10 cpi). It comes with a new, blue ribbon.
