Please Be Sure to See the Pictures I've Posted on YouTube And Blogger for Any Flaws

In some of the pictures you may see a white spot on the handle, it's just a bit of polish which I have removed. I didn't catch those until I took the pictures, I assure you the white spots are gone (see pictures). 

The blade dispenser in the case does not go with this case but it will come with the set if you purchase it, also included is a NOS (new old stock) packet/dispenser of the blades that do go with this set!! Please see the pictures :-)

 1951 NOS Gillette Aristocrat Razor w Original Case W1. This great collectible set is in Very Good Plus Condition. This beautiful razor is in NOS (new old stock) Condition. The End Caps, Center Bar, Bottom Blade Plate, and the Top Part of the Handle Are Plated Gold and Could Not Possibly Look Any Better! It Has Been cleaned with Dawn dishwashing liquid and a soft toothbrush, then polished to the beautiful shine you see here in the pictures. In My Opinion Someone Gave This Is a Gift and It Was Probably Put Away in a Drawer until Now, This Razor Set Looks Completely Unused!

 There Is No Plate Loss to the Razor. See Photos. The TTO knob works as it should and the doors open smoothly and close tightly. 1951 Gillette Aristocrat with the set comes a Dispenser partially full of Vintage Gillette blue blades Blades. This great razor comes in a NEAR Flawless brown leather covered box with maroon velvet interior. The printing on the inside of the lid is Very Slightly Faded. The inside of the case is Almost Perfect, which also can be seen in the pictures.    

 The case is 3 1/2 inches by 3 inches and the razor is 3 1/4 inches long. The case is in Fantastic Condition with No Discernible Ware (See Pictures.) The top of the case still closes with a Snap! The gold piping around the outside of the case is in almost flawless condition, the word Gillette can be clearly seen on the outside of the case. Some consider this the gold standard of DE shavers. These razors are well built and give wonderful shaves. The size and weight of these razors provide great balance and makes shaving a pleasure. Great care was taken in the cleaning and sanitation of this razor. Please be sure to look carefully at all the pictures, also see the pictures I've posted on YouTube and Blogger, I think there are over 70 pictures! :-)

HISTORY: Spanning approximately 70 years, the Aristocrat name plate was the longest running of the Gillette line of DE razors and, in my opinion, was their flagship razor. True, more upscale and pricier sets were made, but only for short periods of time, while the Aristocrat enjoyed fairly steady production until a decade long break from 1951 to 1961. This appears to have been a very popular razor in its time.
