1921 Gillette New Standard Silver Set

1921 Gillette New Standard Silver Set … More Pictures

  Here we have a beautiful 1921 Gillette New Standard Silver Set, this 95-year-old Gillette razor is in Very Good Plus Condition, No bent teeth, one Very Small Tight Stress Fracture at the top of the handle.  The silver plating on this razor is in Fantastic Condition as can be seen in the pictures, there is No Rust, Brassing or Scarring.  All parts fit together tightly as they should to hold the blade in place. This is one of those razors that just has a good feel in your hand, it is known to give a good close shave without taking off your skin.

 This 1921 Gillette "NEW STANDARD"  has been previously owned & used through the years since it's manufacture.  Being manufactured in 1921 this Gillette is 95 Years old. For this razor to be 95 years old it still looks great. The head shows No Signs of Wear. The underside of the head piece shows absolutely No signs of wear.  The teeth of the open tooth comb blade guard have withstood the test of time wonderfully with NO breaks at all.  All original Gillette manufactured. It is a must have for a Gillette collector. 

 The case is in Near Mint Condition, the outside being Almost Mint with just a small bit of wear that can be seen in the pictures. The inside of the case is also in Near Mint Condition, printing on the inside of the lid is clear and present. The fabric on the bottom of the inside of the case is also in Great Condition with Extremely Minimal Signs of Wear. The hinges work as they should but for some reason with the blade case in the box it stays open a small amount.

 The New Improved was supposed to be easier to clean, a bit more durable and lessen the chance of nicks and cuts, perhaps by holding the blade more securely. The New Improved Standard is a set with a New Improved razor made from 1921-1928, also included is the original blade box.  In 1921 Gillette released the New Improved razor with the heavier flat guard. Since the Old Standard was now gone, one of the sets that came out was the NEW STANDARD. It was one of the sets that replaced the Old Type razor developed in 1903.
