Description

 
Based on the Series 2 Hermes Baby with its iconic its gull wing ribbon covers this typewriter was produced in the 1950s and built in the UK by British Typewriters Ltd, West Bromwich, England.

The Empire Aristocrat is a lovely little machine which types well and is in great condition for its age – the cool dark green keys and eye catching red shift keys move freely. The metal case in the rare green colour is in good condition, some dings and dents. The cover opens and closes easily and the handle is sturdy. Looking up the Typewriter Database the serial number (s2/314832) dates the typewriter to 1957.

 
The typewriter has been cleaned and is in full working condition with a new black ribbon fitted. Ribbons are readily available for sale on the internet to allow continued use. See photos for full condition report.
