I believe this is the final Princess model made by Keller & Knappich. (Later Princess clones were made in Bulgaria as the Maritsa.)
It's essentially the same old (excellent) Princess design in a tan, angular, '70s body. The top shell and ribbon cover are one big removable piece.
An instruction manual printed with a code that begins "74" suggests 1974 as the manufacture date.
