Blickensderfer Oriental Typewriter

Wanted: Blickensderfer Oriental Typewriter

The Blickensderfer Typewriter Company was one of the first to produce a writing machine with a carriage that, with the flick of a switch, could travel from right to left in order to accommodate languages such Yiddish, Hebrew and Arabic. Built on the No.8 model's platform, this special typewriter with its two-directional carriage was named the Blickensderfer Oriental. It was available with and without tabulators as well as in aluminum instead of black-painted iron. In Germany, the Oriental was sold for 310 Marks by Groyen & Richtmann of Köln as the Blickensderfer Schreibmaschine Orient Modell.
