Wide ribbon box

I found this box, and couldn't say not to it.

Re: Wide ribbon box

I have no idea which machines will make use of this ribbon but the seller was selling it because "is a cool box, isn't it?" and I just felt that the ribbon needed to be rescued.

Re: Wide ribbon box

Your ribbon is for an early Remington Standard typewriter, models 1 to 7.  This machine went out of production around 1914 !  A lucky find if the ribbon is still viable because you cannot get ribbon fabric in this width any more !

Re: Wide ribbon box

Thanks thetypewriterman, here goes another picture. I does seem to be new. Beautiful purple colour, the cloth seems ok and there is dry ink on it enough to get dirty the fingers tips.
