1957 Royal Quiet Deluxe
ORIGINAL RED FINISH
Original hard-sided case
dimensions: 14″ x 12″ x 6″
serial number: AR-3453560

ORIGINAL Red Royal Quiet Deluxe. 1957. This is the original finish from the manufacturer. Lovely to look at and a pleasure to use. Some chips in the paint along the bottom of the typewriter (see images) but overall the finish is in good condition. The right knob was damaged but we’ve repaired it and it works and looks great. Original case is in a nice condition. The bell sounds great! A new ribbon is installed and it’s ready to go.

The Royal Quiet Deluxe can handle heavy writing projects and this one has a good keystroke. Wonderful for students and creative writers! This one prefers a light hand and can handle a faster touch. The margin release, bell, and tabs all work great. Suitable for medium to heavy use.

Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon installed, demo & tutorial videos. Be sure to watch the demo video so you can see how it performs!

We recommend adding a non-slip typewriter pad to keep the typewriter from scooting across the table.

HOW TO USE THE MARGIN RELEASE: The typewriter will stop typing when you reach your right margin. The bell alerts you that you are within a couple of characters of the margin and that is when you should hit the return button. However, sometimes you are in the middle of a word or thought. Once the carriage stops and you can’t continue further, press the margin release button and you will be able to finish your word.

Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon installed, demo & tutorial videos. Be sure to watch the demo video so you can see how it performs! There are no known issues. This uses a Universal Typewriter ribbon, 2-colors. A new black/red ribbon is installed for you. An extra ribbon can be added to your order (Option 2) and future replacement ribbons may be purchased here on Etsy or on our website at www.jotandtittletypewriters.com

OPTIONAL 6-MO WARRANTY

If you purchase the warranty option, we will cover any mechanical issues NOT mentioned in the listing or demo video and are a result of regular daily use for 6-months starting from the day our tracking information shows that the typewriter has arrived. We recommend taking out your typewriter immediately and testing it for any issues. This warranty covers performance issues such as broken draw band, stuck keys, space bar malfunction, etc. It does NOT cover damage done to the exterior (chipped paint) or damage from misuse or accidents, such as dropping, banging, improper use. Any attempts to adjust or repair the typewriter on your own VOIDS the warranty. We will always attempt to address issues over the phone or email first. After that, if the problem has not been resolved, we’ll send you a prepaid return label If there are damages as a direct result of shipping, please notify us immediately and follow the instructions found in our Shipping and Returns Policy.

Jot & Tittle Vintage Typewriters will cover the cost of repairs and return shipping. The customer is responsible for the cost of getting the typewriter to us for repairs. Our shipping address is: Jot & Tittle Typewriters; 5 Paola Lane; Kimberling City, MO 65686

If the typewriter is unrepairable, we will refund the full amount of the typewriter (less the cost of the warranty or any add-ons purchased). Questions? Please send us a direct message at hello@jotandtittletypewriters.com.
