The writing ball is an authentic piece of steampunk history. In the midst of a rise in popularity of steampunk designs, it’s difficult to find an original steampunk piece from the Victorian era.

At first glance, the vintage writing ball looks like a sci-fi villain’s world domination device; however, upon closer inspection, one can see that the writing ball is a functioning typewriter. Crafted entirely out of brass, the vintage writing ball will make a great contribution to any home as an interior piece or a writing device.
