About this item

This is an Olivetti Lettera 22 portable typewriter probably dating from the 1950s or 1960s. The typewriter is a pale or pastel minot grreen in colur with blak keys. The carry case is brown and probably made from vinyl or a similar synthetic material although the handles may possibly be leather. Approximate measurments excluding the case are 27.5cm (10.75") in width, 32.5cm (12.75") in depth and 9.5cm (3.75") in maximum height.

The typewriter is in good overall condition for its age with no damage but does have a few signs of wear. Most of the keys work fine however the 1/8 (3/8) key sticks when raised to the paper and a couple more keys are are quite stiff. There are also some signs of cosmetic wear with a few marks and scraches to the metal parts and some minor wear to the keys. Part of the zip on the right-hand side of the case has come unstitched as shown in one of the close up photos. The case also has some marks and scuffs from previous usage as illustrated in the detailed photos.
