Antique Aquisition! 1930's Gillette! High Res Expose!
I swooped up this little number at a South Boston flee market for 5 dollars. I'm not sure what the exact model is, but I think it's from the 1930s. Any help here would be appreciated. Also, any background info, or methods of cleaning this would be helpful. Should I clean it and use it? Should I sell it? I really don't know what I'm going to do with it, yet. If you're interested, make an offer. We'll see what happens. Without further ado:
This is how I found her. Timid, and unassuming, on a dusty table, in the middle of a bustling flee market. Honestly, I didn't even know it was a safety razor yet.
Bottom of the chest. Patent dates?
I popped the box open, and there she was. A golden glory to behold.
Razors box. I think this picture came out really well. Stylish no?
The blades inside. Anyone know anything about these blades?
And there were a couple of loose blades in the box.
I could take more pictures, if you want.
