    The Pearl is a beautiful index typewriter with a handsome celluloid dial for selecting the characters. It only typed in uppercase characters.

    The inventor of the Pearl, Theodore W. Searing of New York, N. Y., states his intentions for its design, “… its object being to make the operation of the machine automatic by the action of one key and cause a direct movement of the type characters against the paper destined to receive the impression.”

    Despite his success with these two goals, the Pearl did not sell well. On its wooden box (third image) is written ‘The Pearl, a Practical Typewriter, only $5.00’.
