This gorgeous machine has a distinct low profile with a narrow 'waist'. It uses a type-wheel that is easy to remove, that allows for a quick change of font. To type, a spring loaded hammer (behind the carriage) swings forward and strikes the paper and ribbon against the type-wheel.
The fountain pen above the platen lets the typist make horizontal or vertical lines by moving the carriage sideways or the paper up and down.
