One of the most important literary relics of the 20th century, Ernest Hemingway’s fully documented typewriter, on which he typed his last great work.
The Halda portable typewriter was the last typewriter used by Ernest Hemingway in his career as a writer.
The Halda company takes its name from its founder.
It was founded in Svängsta by Mörrumsån in Blekinge, in southern Sweden, in 1887 by watchmaker Henning Hammarlund, who graduated from the Geneva Academy of Watchmaking in 1880.
This typewriter is from 1955, it has the QZERTY keyboard, it was built in Sweden, and it is marked through the French-Italian company Lagomarsino.
It was designed by Carl Malmsten, the great Swedish designer and architect of interior and furniture and, at the behest of the king and with his decree. Malmsten produced beautiful but highly functional and timeless pieces that created a unified and harmonious feeling, a pleasant sense of warmth.
