1957 Royal Quiet Deluxe
Up for sale is an absolutely stunning Royal Quiet Deluxe which was manufactured in 1957. In addition to Royal's normal crinkle finish in gray/dark brown shades, Royal also offered their popular Quiet Deluxe in Robin Egg blue, Bubblegum pink, and Cherry red. This machine looks great on its own, but collecting all three colors and keeping them together makes for an impressive combination of '50s style. This typewriter itself is in near mint shape all around. The paint is just about flawless, and is truly eye-catching. The machine is also fully functional right down to the bell and is an excellent typer.

Universal ribbons which are sold on this site fit this machine perfectly, making it extremely easy to keep it typing for years to come.
This machine pretty much has it all covered: from appearance, ease of use, reliability- this is an excellent machine all around.
