Shortly after joining the forum, I stumbled across the Geocities site with the date codes for Gillettes. Accidentally, i think, i jumped over to the page that has photos of different razors and sets. Included in that group was the Gillette Richwood set. I thought 'this looks pretty sweet, but doubted that i would ever see one in person.
Through eBay-ing for a couple of months, I was able to cobble together an entire set. Surprisingly, all pieces are still in very good shape after 80-some years. The box came from England, the razor from France and the blade case from Germany.
I thought some of you might be interested in the results.
(I apologize because i think either my camera or my photographic skills suck....and i'm quite sure it's the former!)
