A fantastic antique typewriter. Made by the Bar Lock company and is the Bar-let brand, model 2. The Bar Lock company was based in Nottingham, England. It dates from 1925 and has lovely black glass keys mounted on brass. This example has a wonderful iconic shape. It is working but does need a service and the ribbon is dry. It comes with its original information leaflet and metal hard carry case. A fabulous period piece, perfect for any collector or to use and enjoy. 


Needs a service and is in working order. Ribbon is dry. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
