Supertype Typewriter (Mettoy 4317)
Supertype Typewriter (Mettoy 4317)(i)
A two-tone green lithographed tinplate Mettoy Supertype Typewriter, in its original box.
The Mettype children's typewriter was a popular and distinctive part of the Mettoy range for some years.
The typewriter used to be on display in Area 17. However, we didn't have room to properly show the box, so we ended up replacing it with a more cheerful red unboxed Supertype Junior model.
