Gillette 'Bostonian' Safety Razor in case, with two other razors.

by Spinneyhead

Three vintage safety razors, two of which could be used immediately (just, please, put in new blades, okay), and another which can provide spares.

The Bostonian comes in an attractive metal carrying case. As you open the lid, the razor lifts up into view. The box is very slightly out of true, so the lid doesn't sit properly, and the inside needs tidying, but it's still lovely as is. There is a space for a small metal blade caddy, but that little box is missing.

The Bostonian itself is complete, and disassembles easily. There is a mark on the handle that could be a crack, though it looks more like a scratch. The plating has almost completely gone. With a little shining, the wear pattern could be very attractive.

The second razor doesn't have a maker's mark, but the patent number on the handle matches to a British made Gillette 'single ring' of the 1920s. It also disassembles easily (see photo), but there is a small crack on the handle.

The last razor is stamped as a Gillette and made in England. Its handle is cracked along the length, making it little use, but the head could be used as part of another build.

Three razors, and a very attractive case, for vintage shaving fans.
