1938 Corona Sterling

Serial #2A 46896

The Corona Sterling Floating Shift typewriter embodies the late deco style called "Streamline Moderne." Graceful curves, liquid gloss burgundy color, and an elegant return lever make this machine a sight for sore eyes. Typing feel is snappy, which I believe is typical of Smith-Corona machines, even down to the later models.

In a parallel universe, I was once the Senior Vice-President of Design (Typewriter Division) at Ing. C. Olivetti & C.,S.p.A., Ivrea, Italy. In the real universe, I'm a Chicago-based casual collector and hunter of Olivetti typewriters, and related ephemera, publications, and film sightings.
