View Full Version : Gem Featherweight gold head, case
07-13-2009, 07:52 PM
For now, I'm going to stick to DEs, so I'm selling this Gem Featherweight with a gold head, ivory-colored handle and its case. I believe it's from around 1956 judging by an old Gem advertisement you can see in a post below. Classy SE razor; Good balance, weight and feel.
I'd say it's in "very good" condition to be conservative. The case's hinges work fine and there are no cracks.
These photos are kind of terrible...If you'd like me to take more let me know...It looks a lot better in person.
$15 shipped CONUS.
PayPal only please.
PM me your offer.
(If anyone thinks this price is too steep, don't be afraid to let me know)

I couldn't find it but I know someone recently posted this old GEM advertisement on a thread inquiring on the age of this set. It's too bad the blade box isn't in there, but what can you do.

Received the Featherweight this weekend and in fine condition.
I also wanted to share a pic of the set with its correct blade dispenser. Luck was on my side this time - I had long forgotten the dispenser after I received it in a bunch of tired items in a razor lot purchase. Wiped it off a bit and - presto!
Thanks again to Will for a smooth deal. :001_smile

Congratulations, Will and Bill. That's a great looking set made even better with the addition of the blade dispenser.
