The German firm Olympia has always been noted for making the best quality typewriters.  This machine, the 'baby' of the range is no different !  Originally introduced in 1956 as the 'SF', by the early 1960's Olympia's small portable had grown to a range of three with increasingly luxurious features. 
The Splendid 33 was the basic model in the range, and is almost unchanged from the original 1956 'SF' model.  It uses a single colour ribbon only, and has a fold-up paper rest rather than the spring-loaded one enjoyed by its' more expensive brothers. Neverthless, it has a full 44-character keyboard with a delightful 'touch', and would be ideal for personal correspondence and general use.

This machine is in good condition, save a few minor scratches on the base.  It has already lasted nearly a lifetime and such is the sheer quality of the engineering, that it will almost certainly last another !  If you are looking for a basic typewriter that will give year after year of trouble-free service, this is the one to have !
