Price Is Negotiable!
This is a 1920s Gillette Pocket Edition Safety Razor Kit. It is in Almost Mint Condition. The gold plated carrying box measures approximately 4" by 1 3/4". There Are a couple light scratches on the outside of the lid which can be seen in the pictures. The Latch Is in Fantastic Condition and Works Precisely As It Should. The Hinges Are Also in Fantastic Condition and Are Not Broken or Damaged in Any Way.
This beautiful razor case opens and closes smoothly and when closed the lid stays shut. The inside of the box is also in great condition with a Small Amount of vintage Ware to the paint on the inside of the lid, the lining has no rips or tares. The bottom of the case needs to be polished, please see pictures, the bottom of the case doesn't look as bad as it does in the pictures. Sorry I didn't have time to do that and will leave it up to the new owner, I have polished everything else. The razor is in Almost Mint Condition with a small hair line cracks in the handle, as is usual in this model. On the underside of the head there is the inscription "Made in the USA" and the diamond logo of Gillette. Please be sure to look at the pics as they are part of the description. The set comes with a 2" long gold-toned metal blade bank for storing razor blades and is also in Mint Condition.
The curved comb blade holder has three holes. The hole in the center is for the curved solid holder with a thread stud in the center that screws onto the handle. I have found that the Pocket Editions used to be specially ordered at times by customers and they had the ability to mix and match razor designs and case designs at their own whim. It appears there really is no wrong razor for any of these cases. Page 113 of Krumholz mentions that "there were six different styles of razors and cases offered, and some of these could be mixed and matched."
