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 1990, 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.  This particular model was made exclusively for W H Smith.

The Grey Fox was the luxury model in the range with the automatic space bar, touch control, fold-up paper rest and a host of other useful features.  It has a full 44-character keyboard and would be ideal for personal correspondence and general use.

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 !
