ALL MY ITEMS ARE SOLD FOR BEST OFFER!
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!


  This is a 1920 Gillette Gold "Pocket Edition" safety razor kit.  It is in good condition.  The
gold plated carrying box measures approximately 4" by 1 3/4".  There are couple scratches here and
there, normal wear.  The case is missing the latch, and has a couple small dents on the back.
Opens and closes smoothly.  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 be sure to look at the pics as they are part of the description.

  I have found that the Pocket Editions used to be specially ordered at times by customers and
they had the ability to mix and match razor designs and case designs at their own whim.  It appears
there really is no wrong razor for any of these cases.  Page 113 of Krumholz mentions that "there
were six different styles of razors and cases offered, and some of these could be mixed and
matched."

PRICE $70.00 OBO
SHIPPING $5.60 CONTINENTAL USA

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.
