1949 Royal Quiet De Luxe #A-1725408
This little beauty was hiding under a table when me and Courtney went antiquing in Dallas. It was practically untouched from what I could tell, so we took it home! I'd never seen a box-shaped QDL before, and called it "Vincent" in honor of the painting "Starry Starry Night."
How did a typewriter from Kansas get all the way down there??

I am a professional historian and writer. I have been collecting typewriters since 2013, and use them for all of my work (novels, short stories, poetry, non-fiction, and personal letters). I have a passion for all things antique, but hold a special place for these tools. Some of my collection is up for sale or trade, so if you see something you want, let me know!
