Here we have a 1940 Gillette French Bakelite Tech Set Number 25 with blades,
it's marked "Fabrication Francaise" on the bottom of the guard plate.
It's a dark brown with lighter brown color. If you like bakelites this is a very nice shaver and noticeably more aggressive than the post-war Techs. The weight of the razor is 26g and it is Made in France.
The set Is in Very Good Plus Condition, the top blade plate of this razor is metal and appears to be nickel plated, the bottom blade plate and handle are made of Bakelite. The top blade plate is in Excellent Condition with Almost No Wear and looks pretty much in a new condition. The bottom blade plate is also in great condition with No Chips, Breakage or Cracks. The handle of this razor is also in the same condition. It is a three piece razor, the handle screws on to the upper blade plate. The handle when screwed down tightly locks the upper blade plate down on blade, everything is tight as it should be.
The case is also in Very Good Condition, it has a minimum amount of Ware, there is a small piece on the back left of the case that holds the hinge in place, that peace is broken but in no way affects the opening and closing of the case, please see the pictures. When closed the lid locks down as it should. If you enjoy Bakelite Gillette's this is the one for you, they're hard to find and are a must have for your collection. If you're not a collector it doesn't matter this is a great set and is shave ready.
