Spotted as a decoration piece in the lounge / dining-room of a hostel. The small flowers are plastic, lending it all a solemn yet sadly cheap air.

Despite the artificial floral surroundings, the machine still looks solid and reassuringly metal. Some faded keys had paper labels with the letter written on them by hand, suggesting some use when already worn and faded. Did not dare touch or tamper with it, but its current state with keys all a jumble suggests misuse rather than use. The paint looked a bit 'cloudy', as if it's been chemically attacked by something. Two metal Olivetti spools.
