Clemens Müller AG, based in Dresden, Germany, was one of the oldest sewing machine factories in Europe and it started producing typewriters as early as 1909. Soon it ventured on the production of portable machines with its foldable “Perkeo” (1912), after buying the design of the identical “Albus” typewriter, built by Carl Engler GmbH in Vienna.
In 1925 a new portable model was launched, the Urania Piccola, in production during 10 years until it was replaced in 1935 by the Klein-Urania. This model was produced steadily until 1943, when World War II forced a suspension. After the war, the company saw itself in the East Germany Soviet-sector territory, and was nationalized becoming VEB Mechanik vorm. Clemens Müller. By 1951 a merge with former Seidel & Naumann, also based in Dresden, was completed. In the post-war period the production of the Klein-Urania was only sporadic and short-lived, from 1946 to 1949.
