Beige machine spotted

A beige and angular typewriter; Torpedo 'Cicero' in a shop.

Looked a bit dejected, three keys down.

To avoid any confusion, a small label explains that it is 'decoration' and not for sale. Either way, it is in a bit of a surprising spot. Placed in the cooking section next to the cutting boards. To be fair, also with cooking books. And it is a ''Chickpea' of course :)


  1. I don't think I've ever seen this one before. Add it to the Typewriter Database!

    1. Then a rare bird indeed! (Or a European species ;-)

      Alas, didn't look for serial...

    2. it looks like an ABC-pattern Messa. huh, I don't think I've seen these labelled as "Torpedo" before.
