Very rare white Olivetti Valentine. Perfect.

Olivetti Valentine is a typewriter born in 1968 from the project by Ettore Sottsass and Perry A. King. The model was produced the following year, in 1969. In 1970, Sottsass won the Compasso D’Oro award.
In Italy, it is known mainly as the ‘portable red’.
It is one of the greatest icons of industrial design. The importance of the Valentine is underlined by its presence in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, by its participation in exhibitions on Italian and international design around the world, by its huge commercial success, as well as by awards it received for the innovative solutions adopted by designers during the construction stage.
The Valentine is part of the permanent collection of the Triennale Design Museum in Milan with a red model and of the Alessandro Pedretti Collection, also in the Triennale Museum.

In the last photos, advertising of that period.

A true icon of vintage pop art.

  • Venditore assolutamente inaffidabile: ha spedito un oggetto differente da quello proposto in annuncio. Maleducato e per nulla collaborativo nella restituzione, ha negato l’evidenza.Pessima esperienza!

    The seller has not replied to the emails and has not sent the lot. The order was therefore canceled by Catawiki.

    E ti credo ... comprato più oggetti (pesanti) a pochi euro per fare il furbo ... Costava più spedirli che altro ... Pur essendo consentita tale condotta è scorretto e questo lo sa bene.
    Senza rancore, ma non è così che si fa

    Product was als omschreven en is snel verzonden. Helaas heeft de buitenlandse postdienst er bijzonder lang over gedaan om het produkt uiteindelijk bij mij thuis te krijgen.

    The item is broken, but in the description the seller says : is in good conditions.
    The item is a calculating machine, so saying " good conditions " you presupposed that it works well.

    Se non è soddisfatta dell articolo può restituirmelo senza difficoltà. Si tratta di una calcolatrice vintage, ribadisco, in buone condizioni che andrebbe revisionata poiché ha 50 anni!

    商品重量是5kg,邮费收了89欧,邮费太高了,与实际不符。商品包装很粗糙,没有防震防摔措施。与卖家联系也不回复。
