About

Machine Age Art Deco Streamline Black Bakelite Stenography Set circa 1939 PRICE REDUCED William Petzold's extreme industrial re-design for The Stenotype Company. Patent granted in 1940 to Petzold, assignor to General Electric. One of our favorite machine age designs, curved in almost every aspect, including the keys. Incised speed-lines. Of particular note on this version is the Factory personalized name for "Esther Bell" incised into the case. These original personalized versions were costlier, and difficult to source now. VGC. Untested, but looks complete & functional, with vintage ribbon. Original fitted carrying case, series of lesson books, paper blanks which sit hidden inside a slide-out drawer from the rear, keyboard diagram sheet with instructions verso all included.
