This Remington Home Potable typewriter was made around 1938 but is in great condition. I have given it an oil, clean, replaced the ribbon, thoroughly tested it and found everything to be working as it should. Comes with original case.

The Remington Home Portable Typewriter as shown was assembled by British labour from parts made in the US. The typewriters were assembled at Remingtons factory in London, starting in 1930*.( Remington did the same thing in Australia during the 1930s, with US-made parts assembled at a “branch plant” in Sydney). It is a very similar machine to the Remington 5.

A “Home” Remington portable which belonged to a well-known British author was auctioned in London by Bonhams on June 26, 2007. Quentin Crisp (born Denis Charles Pratt, Christmas Day 1908; died November 21, 1999) was a writer and raconteur. He had used the typewriter to write The Naked Civil Servant. It was bought at auction by a Mr Paul Frecker for £1,600.
