This blue Olivetti Ico is absolutely stunning and in perfect working condition. Christian is an excellent and professional seller. He has been very patient and enthusiastic in addressing all my questions about this Ico I purchased. The shipment was fast and the item was well-packaged. I will definitely recommend anyone interested with vintage typewriters to visit the store and connect with Christian!
