The Japanese firm Silver-Reed began making portable typewriters in 1966.  At first these were branded as other manufacturers products.  From 1974 onwards, they were sold under the Silver-Reed name.  The parent company, Silver Seiko, also made knitting machines.  'Seiko' means 'precision' in Japanese.  By 1985, when this machine was made, Silver-Reed were well established in the UK market, selling through W H Smith and Argos as well as through conventional office equipment dealers.

The Silverette II was the basic model in the range but with the addition of a two-colour ribbon facility.  It has a 42-character keyboard but no other unneccessary frills.  It would be an ideal entry-level machine for someone relatively new to typewriters and not wanting a host of confusing features.

This particular machine appears to have had little use from new and is still in practically unmarked condition.  It certainly has many more years of reliable service ahead of it !
