Vintage Remington Portable Typewriter Model 5. A working typewriter that is stunningly beautiful to look at and to type with. Comes with the original case. This Remington Portable typewriter is in excellent vintage condition. It is fully working. There are some small signs of wear (visible in photos). This typewriter also comes with a mystery. On the left side of the body, it has been engraved with the date 6 June 1935 and what looks like Dutch words saying ‘Brought ???? board’. Was this typewriter from a ship? Or was it confiscated from someone trying to smuggle it aboard a ship?

Whatever the answer to the mystery, this is one beautiful typewriter in great working condition.

We have added a new ribbon and given this antique typewriter a gentle cleaning and service.

This beautiful vintage typewriter has round black keys with white letters and silver-tone metal collars. The front of the paper holder is marked “Remington Portable Model 5”

*** The play ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’ and ‘Streetcar Named Desire’ was written by Tennessee Williams on a Model 5 typewriter.

This classic typewriter comes with the original black hard-sided case, which has brass-tone metal hardware.

This rare typewriter is a collector’s item and would also make a very thoughtful and unique gift. It has a gorgeous classic design that makes it perfect for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It adds a special touch to any home, office or event.
