Vintage Olivetti Valentine typewriter, classic Ettore Sottsass design.

SOLD

This is an Italian design classic, found in many modern design museums. Designed by Ettore Sottsass with Perry King in 1969. It was immediately seen as an iconic design. A striking red design with orange capped spools and  a red carrying case.

This example in in very good condition, with its original carrying case and the rubber clasps are still perfectly intact and string. Only a few minor wear marks on the typewriter and its case. Appears to be in excellent working order.

Very unusually this example still retains the original "meet your valentine" instruction manual.

Winner of the Copasso d'Oro ADI prize in 1970, and was part of MoMA's permanent collection in 1971.

Cased Dimensions: approx 34.5cm x 35.5cm x 11.5cm.
