“This Royal ‘Royalite 100’ Portable Typewriter is in superb condition, fully tested and working, it comes with not one case but two. The first is a standard vinyl leather-look case in perfect condition, the second is an ultra-rare hard carry case made from fibreglass and chromed metal in a gorgeous Sixties ‘clamshell’ design which you can slip the vinyl case into for the ultimate protection. Or leave your typewriter at home and use the hard case to carry your laptop around in.
With chrome fittings and a wooden handle it really looks the business, there are some paint scars to the hard case from use over its lifetime and could be resprayed if you wished to. The clamshell design is a rare find as most typewriter hard cases tended to resemble a suitcase rather than a space-age icon.
The Royal range of typewriters were made in Holland and date from the middle of the last century and this particular typewriter was originally purchased in 1963. Unfortunately the key for the case is no longer around but it fastens ok without being locked.”
