1919 Urania 3 Serial # 18901 1919 Urania 3 typewriter, Serial # 18901 Kristians Luhaers's 1919 Urania 3 typewriter. 2022-02-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kristians Luhaers: 1919 Urania 3 Serial # 18901 I saw it in a local classified ad - "100 years old typewriter Urania for sell". Met the guy who was selling it and took a couple of photos. He was almost right about the age of the typewriter. The serial number places it on 1919. Needs a lot of restoration work - carriage pulling mechanism is broken, a lot of rust and dust... But anyway looks lovely! Such a temptation!

An update - yesterday I got a call from the guy who was selling this Urania. As he didn't get better offer he accepted mine. So tomorrow I will pick it up. Hopefully I will be able to finish the restoration until it will became a 100 years old.

TYPEWRITERS...
Doesn't they look sexy to you? Such a number of different shapes, forms and colors.... All those complicated and not so complicated mechanisms, levers and arms, gears and sprockets... how they became alive and start dancing at your fingertip punches...
It started on December 2015 when I bought my second typewriter... Beaten, damaged, dusty... I took it apart, cleaned, repaired. Since then it became as an obsession... Now there are more than dozen.
