1930 Mignon Model 4 Serial # 333258 1930 Mignon Model 4 typewriter, Serial # 333258 Vlastimil Novak's 1930 Mignon Model 4 typewriter. 2023-06-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Vlastimil Novak: 1930 Mignon Model 4 Serial # 333258 I am happy to present you my Mignon!
I wanted it since my childhood. I had spotted it in one old TV series and I wanted it so badly at that time. But it was something unreachable.
When I started collecting and buying machines from every corner of my small country, it was possible to get one, but... I wanted one with a wooden case. And it should be in great shape. And it would be nice to have it with more typefaces. And it shouldn't cost as much as a used midsized car...

*/after a lot of years and sixty typewriters/*

Here it is. Except for hopeless feed rollers in great shape in a wooden case and with schreibschrift!! My first machine with a script typeface.
Another great thing is that I bought it from a lovely old lady. She inherited it from her grandmother and she was keeping it for fifty years.
It is always a joy to buy a machine from someone, who is pleased with how is now repaired and functional.

No need to present the machine itself. It is Mignon...
New feed rollers, otherwise just cleaned and oiled.
Ikea provided furniture purposed round fabric-like feet for the base. I suppose, that originally they should be black, but Ikea is making just white ones.

And as a bonus at the end of the gallery is a cute typewriter pencil sharpener, which is next to Mignon in my display.

I am a passionate amateur mechanic from the Czech Republic, and I have always mesmerized by the complexity of typewriters since my childhood. The first one (Zeta 1501) was just a toy to me in the beginning, but by every year I got older I got also better at understanding how it is working and how to disassemble it and assemble it again. The second one was Ideal DZ33 which started my love for antique machines with all the chrome and glass keys.
My machines range from mint ones through a majority of well-used machines to piles of rust that I have repaired to be typewriters again which is a lot of fun for me.
I am quite obsessed with the beauty and technical genius of standard Continentals. I love how they were producing one model of a typewriter from 1904 to the '50s with constant changes in design and my goal is to collect every decal and every major variation of them.
