Underwood 450 Typewriter - Vintage WORKING White and Black Portable Typewriter with Original Carrying Case - Mid Century Modern Decor

$201.42 $223.80

This is a beautiful vintage Underwood 450 circa 1960's with a Mad Men feel.

The Underwood 450 semi-portable typewriter was the first distinctly different Underwood portable to appear on the market in six years, since a modified Olivetti Studio 44 appeared as the Underwood 21 in 1961. The 450 was also to be the last distinctly different Underwood.

The Underwood 450 was designed by an American, John Svezia, of Millburn, New Jersey. The Underwood 450 was the only Olivetti portable typewriter designed by a non-Italian.

The typewriter comes with the original plastic case, making it easy to transport. Perfect for the writer on the go with a flare for mid century modern.

It is also great for weddings and events.

Excellent condition. The keys still strike firmly, the ink carriage advances as it should, and other parts worked well during testing. Carrying case comes with original Styrofoam seat.
