1920s Gillette Brownie Safety Razor and Box


1920s Gillette Brownie Safety Razor and Box
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE! 
ALL MY ITEMS ARE SOLD FOR BEST OFFER! 


  This vintage 1920’s Gillette Old Type, Brownie, safety razor set comes with the original box.
The box measures approximately 4 inches long x 2 inches wide x ¾ inches high.  The handle does 
have the normal crack in the handle but the ends aren't loose.   The box is in fair condition with 
edge wear and stains.  Measures approx. 4” x 1 ¾".


  It was made in the 1920s, it doesn’t have a date code, but I know these “Brownie” box 
sets were only made in that era.  It has to be between 80 and 90 years old.  The hinged case holds 
the three piece razor with a vintage Gillette blade.  The “Brownie” was so called because it came 
in the imitation brown leather case you see here.  I believe the Brownie sold for $1, possibly at 
near cost, as it developed customers for Gillette’s more profitable blades.  The handles were made 
in three parts, press fitted together. Being different thicknesses, they contract at different 
rates, hence a tendency to crack.

PRICE $30.00 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.
