The Lambert typewriter was invented by the French-American Francoise Lambert (1851-1937).

This rare, wonderfully designed and engineered typewriter is in good original condition. The character buttons are all present and clearly legible, when they are pressed the spring loaded disc tilts and moves down as it should. Underneath is a convex disc with the embossed characters, which in turn moves down making contact with the paper. There is a lever on the left which can be shifted into three positions giving each key three different characters.

This example has the serial number 5401.

Circa 1910.

Please remember that you are purchasing vintage items. They have lived a life and will have the age related wear which gives the items their original and unique character.
