I'm a NYC prop stylist who shops a lot & a collector of some very cool stuff. The result: I have a bunch of truly neat things to pass along to you.
Vintage 1960s/1970s Ettore Sottsass design Olivetti Studio 45 manual typewriter with plastic protective carry case, excellent working condition (needs new ribbon). No mechanical issues, and very clean. It has been out of use in its case for decades until now. The case has its original booklet and keys to the locks. The Studio 45 is a late 1960s design and was produced (this one in Barcelona) until 1973.
If you do not know about Olivetti there is this: Olivetti S.p.A. is an Italian manufacturer of typewriters, computers, tablets, smartphones, printers and other such business products as calculators and fax machines. In 1952, the Museum of Modern Art held an exhibit titled "Olivetti: Design in Industry"; today, many Olivetti products are still part of the museum's permanent collection. Olivetti began with mechanical typewriters when the company was founded in 1909, and produced them until the mid 1990s. Until the mid 1960s they were fully mechanical.
This item is located in my studio in Williamsburg (work) or Bed-Stuy (home); I also have a house in CT so delivery or meet ups upstate along 6-84 are possible too; locally, pickup is near all trains in Williamsburg (Leonard Street and Meserole—close to Lorimer L or Montrose L, or the M at Lorimer, or the G at Broadway) ) or I can meet locally. I can deliver curbside in NYC for 20 dollars. Cash only. No Venmo. If you low ball me I will not respond. If you ask to send me a cashiers check or ask “can you please offer your last price?” or tell me that the Queen of Idontunderstandistan needs my item but is traveling and will send a courier with a check, please be prepared to be reported to Craigslist as a scammer.
This style goes well with period furniture like:
