Now 's a vintage razor fit for a KING!!!!I have for auction a wonderful vintage hallmarked Jan. 13 1920 Gillette gold razor with its original gold case, and blade holder. This set comes in an absolutely gorgeous deep royal purple velvet lined gold art deco case that has a panel in the center just perfect for engraving or monogramming. The set is in excellent vintage condition with minimal scuffing and scratching, I am sure it could use a good polishing,but I'll be danged if I can find my polishing cloth :). The razor is in perfect working order with just a little wear to the gold plating. The razor is heavy and 4 inches long with the blade head being just over 1 1/2 inches. The head of the razor is hallmarked with the serial number 39821, and the stem unscrews to easily take apart the razor for cleaning and blade changing. The gold plating on all of the pieces (case, blade holder, and razor) is in very good condition with very little, if any, plate loss. The Satin lining in the top of the case is marked with "Trade Gillette Mark" with the arrow through it, and Made in USA.

Don't miss out on this fabulous collectible vintage razor, ones of this quality and age don' ... read more
