The vintage typewriters back to the front of the stage deco
The typewriters are witnesses of an era passee. Ancestor of our beloved computer, they are making a comeback in our decoration. Colorees and plastic in the years 50 and 60, or more imposing and sober in 20 years, the typewriters were crosses several decades while inspired fashion and needs. Today they adorn our interior by giving it a touch of vintage and nostalgia.
As we have seen in MaisonObjet living in this beginning of the year, the vintage is always honored and typewriters are an effective way to bring that retro touch to your interior.
In antiques, you’ll find all types of models often at very low prices. For older models and restored, it will turn to the flea markets or to an antique dealer. The models of 30 and 40 years of Underwood and Remington brands are quite common. However, the models dating from the nineteenth century are rare.
Did you know ? The Remington brand invented the keyboard «Qwerty» — Anglo-Saxon equivalent of our keyboard «QWERTY».
Tip: Before buying your typewriter, make sure it has all the keys work by tapping. Be blocked if they stay, it may allow you to negotiate the price. If they come down but nothing is displayed, it is probably the ribbon that has to be changed.
