Royal Bar Lock typewriter.


Sorry, this item is sold


The Columbia Bar-Lock originated in 1889, USA and then production moved to Britain at the beginning of the last century. The typewriter became known as the Royal Bar-Lock and was supplied to the Royal Household. One of the unusual features is the keys are positioned on seven rows. Every symbol and every lower and upper case letter has its own separate key octagonal in shape, either black or white in colour.

This is thought to be a 1909  number 14

It is in need of restoration.  There are several areas of paint loss.  There is no cover.   There is no wood base.  The keys do move, they are not seized up.
