New Model - Circa 1881

The Crandall Typewriter was patented in 1881 by Lucien S. Crandall and manufactured by the Crandall Machine Company of Groton, New York. Ornately decorated with inlaid mother of pearl, painted roses and gold scrollwork, the New Model Crandall was one of the most extravagantly decorated typewriters ever manufactured. The Crandall printed from a type sleeve, with inking being accomplished by a ribbon. It also used an unconventional two row keyboard with square key tops.
