It’s been many years since the vintage typewriter revival started, and the trend is here to stay. We frequently stock fully refurbished 1920s & 1930s models from Royal and Imperial. The Royal typewriters were manufactured in NYC, and they’re built to last many lifetimes. The Imperial typewriters were manufactured in the UK, and are incredibly pleasing to the eye, with lots of chrome, beautiful contours and also built to last many lifetimes. There are a lot of typewriters out there, but finding an early example carefully refurbished and brought back to its full glory is a rarity. All our typewriters are meticulously cleaned, polished, waxed and mechanically serviced, resulting in a reliable machine with beautiful time-warp looks, feel and typing from a bygone era. They’re a real treat to admire and type on.

The typewriter above is a Royal Model P from the early 1930s. It has tabulation, which is an unusual feature for this model. The mocha two-tone brown is outstanding. For more information on this model, please visit Hartong International on Etsy.

Offering a handsome cast iron and wood drafting table. Circa 1910s-1920s. I’ve sold a lot of antique/vintage drafting tables, but this is a very unique one with solid cast iron legs. It’s also rather large with the table top measuring 60 inches wide. The drafting table is in remarkable condition, and everything works perfectly as intended. There’s a lot of versatility with these old industrial furniture pieces. I’ve sold vintage drafting tables to buyers intent on using them for various purposes. Frequently they get repurposed as kitchen islands, dining tables and desks. For more information on this drafting table, please visit Hartong International on Chairish.
