The back cover on the carriage is missing and the paper table is a little bent. Well ... life.

The paper table label is embossed, ground flat, polished, chromed, and then the piece is masked and painted. Looks nicer than a decal.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Royal Quiet on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Royal Serial Number page and the Royal Quiet By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
