RICHARDS RAZORS
1917 Gillette Hollow Handle Pocket Edition Safety Razor

  This is a Vintage 1917 Gillette "Hollow Handle Pocket Edition" Safety Razor,  it's in very
good+ condition.  There are no hair line cracks in the handle, as is usual in this model.
 
  On the underside of the head there is the inscription "Made in the USA"  and the diamond logo of
Gillette.  Please look at the pictures and email me if you need more information.


DISCRIPTION:
   Gillette "Hollow Handle Pocket Edition" Safety Razor  , Thick Bar Handle.
Gillette 1917 "OLD TYPE" safety razor, gold plated. The razor has a thicker bar handle.
   This is a three piece razor, the top piece has the bar that fits in blade slot with a center
stud that screws into the handle.  The bottom blade holder has a slot in the middle. This is an
Open Comb razor.

   Also the bottom of the handle (the ball) is removable, revealing a hollow razor handle;
I have no idea what this was meant to be or used for, but as you can see in the pics
there it is.

UPDATE:  THE HOLLOW HANDLE WAS MOST LIKELY TO HAVE HELD A STEPTIC PENCIL!!

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.
