This is it! I’m just waiting to get this thing from the eBay seller. This whole design was my favorite of all the vintage and antique typewriters I saw on ebay, and I can’t wait to get clacking away on those old round glass keys.
I’m really digging the blue and gold striping here. I hope to carry that throughout the design of the project.
I’m anxious to get this thing home because there is some work to be done in this shot. There’s some surface rust on the roller bar, and it looks like there’s some alligator crackling along the Underwood paper tray.
It looks like some of the gold paintwork on the sides has worn off over time. although I’m a little bit bummed about that, I think it can add to the antique feel of the project.
I really have no idea what all of this stuff back here does. I know that there are some patent dates down there, but I’ll need to find the serial number if I want to know exactly what year she was made in
