    Default Valentine's gift, Razor pics

    My wife was nice enough to buy this ABC pocket set for me for Valentine's day. I believe the case is Empire pattern, and the handle is Scroll. Not really an expert on these. Sorry about the picture quality, but I think you get the idea of how nice a present this was.

    Your identifications are correct. Congrats! The Empire set is by far the most attractive of the ABC designs, and you have half of the set now. Keep an eye out for the razor!

    This set came from an antique store in a neighboring town. The owner thinks she has another one, but she couldn't find it. Have to wander if she got the razor and case mixed up. I plan on bugging her about that later on.

    The back of the razor has the Gillette signature, and the list of patent dates from different countries. Thanks for the links americanarmsdealer. And yes, I did marry well.
