This typewriter is much prettier in person.
This typewriter was designed in 1961 by Carl Sundberg and Montgomery Ferar. The front page of the patent is below:

Remember to keep the carriage-return lever upright during use--it locks the carriage when folded down. When I bought this typewriter, the carriage stuck in the middle occasionally, until I realized that the carriage was locking itself. 
This ad appeared in The Seattle Times on May 20, 1963.
