Yeah, we’ve got loads of vintage furniture and wall art. But we like to stock all the delights we find, too – and when our dealers kept finding great vintage typewriters, we had to give them a home.


There's something beautifully honest and true when it comes to the form and function of these pieces. A good vintage typewriter can transform your office, workspace or bedroom. We love them. And we own a fair few ourselves.


Do vintage typewriters work?



Smith & Crabbe are one of our best dealers when it comes to typewriters. They hunt down machines which have been well cared for by previous owners and fully test them all. With most typewriters, the ribbon has plenty of life yet. With others, they might spend their retirement as decorative pieces.

We’ll often get rare typewriters – fantastic colours or editions which haven’t been produced for decades. But if you’re not after a certain age or style, you could get quite a bargain – especially for such a conversation-starting piece of décor. 


Have a look today and see if a vintage typewriter is the talking point your home has been looking for.
