1921 Gillette OLD TYPE STANDARD Silver Safety Razor  




  1921 Gillette "OLD TYPE STANDARD" Silver Safety Razor, serial numbered, also patent marked, has
a B-1 Blue Blade in it. 
  
  Serial number on razor is N846626, Made in USA, Gillette, Bottom marked Pat. Nov. 15104, plating is
silver or nickel plate patina, plating has some signs of wear on high points as pictured.
The razor functions properly, and would make a great addition to any collection.

  1921 Standard Old Type Gillette safety razor, single ring. Razor is silver plated. Three piece design 
with long center stud and two smaller studs to hold the 3 hole style blade. These razors were serial 
numbered.  This one has serial number N846626 which dates it to 1921


  This "Old Type" Gillette has been previously owned & used through the years since it's manufacture.
Being manufactured in 1921 this Gillette is at least  90 Years Old.  For this razor to be 90
years old it still looks great, faint flaws & all. The flaws of this Gillette are truly minor
for a 90 Year Old Razor.  This Old Type's Plating has withstood the test of time gracefully with ALMOST
NO signs of wear!


 The head shows small signs of wear, just a few tiny surface scratches & scuffs nothing too bad at all.
The underside of the head piece shows mimimal signs of wear.  The teeth of the open tooth comb blade
guard have withstood the test of time wonderfully with no bends or breaks at all.
  
  All original Gillette manufactured.  Any signs of age only add to the
character of a Vintage Razor!  It is a must have for a Gillette collector.

Terms of Sale:
When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you 
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be 
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item 
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description.  All sales final.

  1. Dear Richard Andrews;
    I have the same looking Gillette Razor except my is gold tone. I have looked and looked and I can not find any markings anywhere. It also came in a box that is metal with leather around the sides. The box has 6 holes/open marks on the top and bottom of box. Inside is purple lining that has the Gillette logo and Made in U.S.A. a place for the razor and a place for the blades. I can not find any markings on outside of the box. If possible could you please help me to identify this razor. If you need a photo I would be happy to send you some. Thank you for your time. Rona Bruce rn_brc@yahoo.com
