1930 Mignon Model 4 Serial # 333258 1930 Mignon Model 4 typewriter, Serial # 333258 Vlastimil Novak's 1930 Mignon Model 4 typewriter. 2018-03-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Vlastimil Novak: 1930 Mignon Model 4 Serial # 333258 I am happy to present you my Mignon!
I wanted it since my childhood. I had spotted it in one old TV series and I wanted it so badly in that times. But it was something unreachable.
When I started collecting and buying machines from every corner of my small country, it was possible to get one, but... I wanted one with wooden case. And it should be in great shape. And it would be nice to have it with more typefaces. And it shouldn't cost as much as used midsized car...

*/after lot of years and sixty typewriters/*

Here it is. Except hopeless feed rollers in great shape in wooden case and with schreibschrift!! My first machine with script typeface.
Another great thing is that I bought it from lovely old lady. She inherited it from her grandmother and she was keeping it for fifty years.
It is always joy to buy machine from someone, who is pleased how is now repaired and functional.

No need to present machine itself. It is Mignon...
New feed rolllers, otherwise just cleaned and oiled.
Ikea provided furniture purposed round fabric-like feets for base. I suppose, that originally they should be black, but Ikea is making just white ones.

And as a bonus in the end of the gallery is cute typewriter pencil sharpener, which is next to Mignon in my display.
