Olympia Plana Model B Portable (1947)
This very rare top quality portable from the famous German maker Olympia, is in excellent original condition. The typewriter was manufactured in 1947 and would have been one of the last machines to be manufactured at their Erfurt factory, before moving in 1948 to Wilhelmshaven in Western Germany. Most Plana's we have seen, have a German keyboard layout, but this machine was manufactured for the English market, as can be seen by the dealers badge and the 'Foreign' decal. The machine has been fully serviced with a new ribbon fitted and writes perfectly with a nice clear pica 10 typeface (see sample picture), and is supplied with the original carry case and a copy of user instructions. A superb collectable model in excellent working order.
Replacement ribbons for this machine are available to order on our website. (Group 1 )
