Here for sale is a fantastic antique typewriter. It is made by the Continental company who was based  in Germany. The company was founded in 1885 by Johan Winklhofer (1859-1949) and Richard Jaenicke. It started with service and production of bicycles. In 1890 the company started to manufacture engineering tools.

The white glass keys are just lovely together with the japanned metal casing. This is a stunning model which is functioning but it really needs a overhaul and service. The ink is dry and is an old piece. 


Shows lots of 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.
