Tiny Typewriters

Found along with more typewriter ribbon tins (see previous post) were these small typewriters, which missed out when I posted on the "Smallest Typewriter Collection" back in August last year. 
This ornate typewriter (temporarily missing one of its keytops - it'll be buried away somewhere hard to find) is a musical box.
This is a cigarette lighter, not that I need such a thing any more!
These are two of my Limoges typewriters, the one on the right (with QERTY keyboard) bought at the Alhambra in Granada a couple of years ago (of all places - but I had to bring one typewriter home from Spain!).
The red plastic typewriter, back left, is the only wind-up toy typewriter of this size I have ever seen. The carriage moves backward and forward after pressing the keyboard.
One for Ryan Adney?
Try typing with this one!

So cute!

These are fascinating. It's difficult to visualize how small they are, though, without some common object for relative scale. A thumbtack perhaps, or a bit of a ruler.

That wind-up one is definitely my favorite. Cool!
