1928 Bijou 4 Serial # 86230 1928 Bijou 4 typewriter, Serial # 86230 Nick Winter's 1928 Bijou 4 typewriter. 2020-01-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Winter: 1928 Bijou 4 Serial # 86230 I can't believe how elegant this looks, but regrettably it doesn't work because of an escapement problem - the carriage doesn't catch on anything, and just zings straight to the end of the line.

I don't have a hope in hell of fixing it by myself but I REALLY want this one to function so I might have to hunt down a real repairman.

Sold May 2019.
