1935 Olivetti MP1 Ico Serial # 20548 1935 Olivetti MP1 Ico typewriter, Serial # 20548 Ton Sison's 1935 Olivetti MP1 Ico typewriter. 2014-07-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ton Sison: 1935 Olivetti MP1 Ico Serial # 20548 Olivetti Modelo Portatile 1, Ingegnere Camilo Olivetti (Ico). Designed by Aldo Magnieli, the Ico is considered by many- myself included -as the most beautiful typewriter ever produced.

It's got an elegant typing feel that is almost devoid of resistance. "Too elegant," according to two of my friends.

This stunner came from the Richard Polt collection. It was sold by the Ferdinand Schrey Company in Vienna, Austria.
