About
Beautiful Vintage (Almost Antique!) 1930’s Typewriter by Burroughs. VERY Art Deco! RARE. These were only made for a few years. The Burroughs typewriter was, in fact, the work of a large team of highly qualified and skilled mechanical engineers and a designers working for the Burroughs Adding Machine Company in Detroit in the early to mid-1930s. It was introduced at national business shows in New York and Chicago in 1931. The designer and team leader was Dwight Prentice Rowland (born Boston, November 22, 1865). ,There were 12 patents associated with this machine. Various typewriter historians have likened parts of the Burroughs design to other contemporary machines, and to earlier Underwood, Remington and Fox standards, as well as Jesse Alexander’s Perfect typewriter. But the Burroughs, inspired by predecessors as it may have been, is an original work, it is unique. Not only is the Burroughs advanced in design and appearance, but it is constructed throughout of the finest materials. Parts frequently manipulated by the operator are plated with chromium, adding to beauty and durability. Rust-proof cadmium plating is used on unexposed parts. Provisions for adjustments have been built in at important bearing points, a fine example of engineering forethought, eliminating the need for premature repairs, and extending the life of the machine. The machine’s appearance was in itself a selling point. Enclosed on all sides, finished in combination black crystal and enamel, with many parts chromium plated, it speaks quietly but eloquently of fine workmanship, advanced design. It is strongly built, and so perfectly balanced on its ball-bearing rollers that its movement is remarkably smooth. And the Burroughs correspondence-size carriage accommodates sheets up to 11 inches wide and provides a 10-inch writing line. This unusual capacity is convenient for addressing large envelopes or writing on wide paper. less
