This is easier - I recognize the margin stops and paper finger: it's a Hermes Baby! But this is one from the late '50s instead of the '40s version you featured on the blog in June. Have we seen a full picture of this one yet?

Adwoa, you're too fast! Half an hour after publishing the right answer! I'll wait to publish your comment, though, until the evening when others had a chance too. And no, this machine hasn't been featured on the blog yet.

Empire Aristocrat? (:

notagain hat gesagt…

is it a Hermes Baby or Rocket?

You all got it right, Adwoa, Ted and notagain.
But you Ted recognized the right typewriter, but the wrong manufacturer. It's a swiss-built Hermes Baby, and as Adwoa almost correctly mentioned, it was made in the mid-1950s. The "The Collection" entry on this machine will follow in the next weeks, and it's completely in english. :)
Next Question appears tomorrow, 7:00 AM (Swiss Time, UTC+2)

Ted hat gesagt…

aww, I was fooled by the color. :D
