Hello again !
To redeem myself from the few postings in the last days here is my second post of the day !!
A Royal Caravan (or, according to this site a fleetwood? if you happened to know more about this feel free to leave a comment !!) typewriter. In my collection this is the third typewriter I bought online from the U.S.
I don't do this often but as my favorite typewriters are these from the 60s-70s this was too good to pass on ! According to Machines of Loving Grace this design was influenced by Danish design:
In terms of writing it is really a very good typewriter. I am not very happy about some of the yellow keys but overall it is a nice piece for both display and real writing !
Obviously the wood is just plastic and the whole typewriter, apparently made in Japan, is not suitable if you dislike the material. Personally, with the two Orange Hermes and the Valentine, I have started to like the plastic bodies as they make the typewriter much lighter. Obviously it might not be as durable as a metal typewriter like the brosette but I still like them a lot.
The closed view matches the woody body
Few keys are pretty yellow..
But overall a good specimen !
Pretty standard Pica yet nice typeface. Perhaps Royal Pica is unique to Royal typewriters ??
I hope that you enjoyed this post and that in case you wonder the floor that I used as background is real wood and not plastic :) !!
