1930 Royal Typewriter Model P in Bright Red.

While the Royal Typewriter is a common machine and burgundy red examples turn up quite regularly, this original bright post-office-red tone is a much rarer shade for this particular model. It dates to 1930 and was made in the US. As the serial number shows this is the Model P and it comes with its original black vinyl carry case. However once out on the desk its punchy red colour really makes this machine stand out and would have been a very stylish thing when new.

It is offered in very good complete and untouched condition. There is some age related chipping to the red enamel around the most common wear points. The case also has some wear, the handle is broken and there is a small splattering of light woodworm in one corner, but the star of course is inside the case.

Overall this typewriter should clean up very nicely for any collector and would be great for display.
