It looks nonfunctional but it certainly has character. Intriguing shop!
Such a pretty machine when in good shape, though. I suppose there's worse uses for a beat machine (:
The perfect book-end. Wonder if I could rent a few of my heavier machines out...?
Hm, 'decorative use' is increasing. Just this morning spotted that Otto (a quite large online retailer, German) is selling typewriters as interior decoration. Not the fake polystone or tinplate things, but actual old Olympia's, Continental's and Underwoods from the forties and fifties. Sold as decoration, functionality not guaranteed...Whatever next...
