Here we have a beautiful 1922 Gillette New Standard Silver Set, this 95-year-old Gillette razor is in Excellent Condition, No bent teeth, Absolutely No Stress Fractures in 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. It has a serial number of 02337B, which is located on the top of the bottom blade plate.
This 1922 Gillette "NEW STANDARD" has been previously owned but to me it looks as if it has never been used, it truly looks as though someone bought it and then put it away in a drawer. Through the years since it's manufacture it was loved. Being manufactured in 1922 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 Near Mint with almost no wear which 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 closing the case with a snap.
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. Please be sure to look closely at all the pictures, also see the pictures that I have posted on YouTube.
