Vintage RARE 1920 Gillette Standard DG on Bottom Blade Plate
All Items Sold for Best Offer
This razor is extremely collectible, per Krumholtz Page 186; he lists the "G" in "D" as "Scarce".
This razor has a marking of a "G inside a D" on the bottom of the blade plate which means that at one point the razor was shipped to France and sold in that country. From my understanding the GD marking is a hallmark to show that the razor is silver plated.
This is a vintage 1920 Gillette Standard Safety Razor with Blades & Box.
The leather box with worn velvet cover small press button fastener with Gillette on it. The outside of the box is in rough condition, the inside is covered in royal purple fabric and is in servicable condition. The razor marked Gillette USA on velvet purple stand with small blades box and a couple of French Gillette blades.
The underlying material is solid brass, it is tripple silver plated. I am not sure if there is an in between plating layer, like nickel, if anything. Written on the razor handle: Patented Nov. 15 1904. This razor is a 1920 Model #102 Gillette three-part "OLD TYPE" safety razor using the pioneering system of disposable blades. (patented by Gillette in 1904). Silver-plated knurled removable handle.
Three piece razor, top guard has three studs, center one is threaded for handle.
Uses 3 hole blades, some of these razors have small splits in the handle which is common in this type razor. The razor is silver plated with no plating loss what so ever. It has been cleaned and polished, but you may want to give a once over yourself.
