RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  This razor is in very good+ working condition.  There is no plate loss. See photos.  The TTO knob 
works well and the doors open smoothly and close tightly.  1948-50 Gillette Aristocrat with the 
ORIGINAL white bakelite blade holder in a brown leather covered box with maroon velvet interior.  
The case is 3 1/2 inches by 3 inches and the razor is 3 1/4 inches long.  All the gold plating looks 
excellent with no discoloration or deep scratches.  The case has one small flaw, the gold coloring 
on the edge of the case has some vintage wear that can be seen in the pictures, otherwise the case 
is in great condition with no scratches, cuts or dings.


  1948-50 Gillette Gold Aristocrat safety razor and it's case are in very good vintage condition.  
Some consider this the gold standard of DE shavers.  These razors are well built and give wonderful 
shaves.  The size and weight of these razors provide great balance and makes shaving a pleasure.  
Great care was taken in the cleaning and sanitation of this razor.  Here is another shiny razor 
from the stellar line of Gillette razors.

HISTORY:
   Spanning approximately 70 years, the Aristocrat name plate was the longest running of the
Gillette line of DE razors and, in my opinion, was their flagship razor.  True, more upscale 
and pricier sets were made, but only for short periods of time, while the Aristocrat enjoyed 
fairly steady production until a decade long break from 1951 to 1961.  This appears to have been 
a very popular razor in its time.

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.
