It is Olivetti's first portable typewriter and is also known as the ICO (an acronym for 'Ingegnere Camillo Olivetti' - the founder of Olivetti). It was taken out of production in 1950. By then, 139,706 had been made in black, red, grey and brown - plus a few other colours (such as sky-blue) ordered by special clients. It’s a fantastic Italian design, often described as the most beautiful typewriter ever made.

Difficult to describe how pleased I was when this one was finally freed of the super packing in which it arrived. This rare machine had received some touch up work by Jacek. Whether to do this had been a difficult question, but the results were super beyond expectation. You can depend on El Granero to do their very best for you, and their best is hard to beat. And, as many reviewers have said, communicating and dealing with them is pure delight. This is number 4 for me, and there will be more to come.
