I know that many of you prefer the old tallow-based soaps, but I’m trying to narrow my soaps/creams to just a few of my favorites, so I’m hoping to trade some of these and a few others. I would be interested in new or used soaps, and depending on the value & amount of what you have, make me a trade offer for one or more of mine and see if we can make a deal. I would add cash or vice-versa for certain deals.
First, the ones I’m interested in:
Proraso Red (Sandalwood) shave cream
Trumper’s Rose shave soap/cream
Trumper’s Sandalwood shave soap and/or skin food
Trumper’s Coral Skin food
Crabtree & Evelyn Sandalwood soap or aftershave balm
Madame Scodioli soaps
Madame Scodioli Laudanum solid scent
I have a tube of the old tallow Colgate Barber soaps, and have decided to part with one or two of the pucks for the right trade. These are much harder to find than the regular tallow Colgate Cup soaps (which are also great tallow soaps).
This is one of the tallow Colgate Cup Soaps, also unused.
This is a ½ puck of the old tallow Williams soap which I used once.
Next is a used vintage tallow Watkins brand soap. As the pics show, it still shows the brand so I don’t know how much it was used. I don’t know much about it… I used it once and it seemed very similar to the tallow Colgate soap to me.
Next is some Cella shave soap that was formed into a Mama Bear’s jar. I looked up Cella ingredients on the internet and tallow was the second ingredient. The tub looks about ½ full or maybe a little more to me.
More soaps in the next post down... can't figure out how to get more than five pics per post.
