1935 Urania Piccola Serial # 151698 1935 Urania Piccola typewriter, Serial # 151698 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1935 Urania Piccola typewriter. 2019-07-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1935 Urania Piccola Serial # 151698 You know how sometimes you like the first one, so you buy a second one?

This is the slightly earlier version of what would become the Klein-Urania. They are mechanically quite different from the later machines, but the feel is similar, and the right-hand return lever is something unique to this family of portables. They are fun, if plainly featured machines. This one had a skin condition, but the original decals were so nice that it would be a shame to remove the visual history.

This one has become the Venneburg 'Shop Truck', or rather the machine that can be brought place to place without worry of other paint damage or any wear. It is not the prettiest, but it is a functional workhorse.
