The Williams typewriter is often referred to as the grasshopper because the type keys resemble grasshopper legs when in operation. It was invented by John Newton Williams of Brooklyn, New York. Newton started applying for patents in 1875 but it wasn't until 1890 & 1891 that he finally achieved them and started manufacture. The No 6 was introduced in 1906 and was made for only a short period of time since the company went out of business in 1909. This machine has been fully restored and still has its original tin carrying case. It has a condition rating of 2,2.
