1930's Valet AutoStrop Razor in Case w Blade Box


1930's Valet AutoStrop Razor in Case w Blade Box
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!


  Valet AutoStrop Razor made by AutoStrop Razor Co. New York U. S. A.
This fine vintage razor is in the original brown metal box with a blade box.  The razor is in  
good condition for being 80 plus years old.  To replace the blade flip the lever up to open the 
blade door, insert new blade and flip the lever down to lock blade in place.  This razor uses 
single edge blades which can be purchased in many places.  


  Razor measures 3-3/8" long and 1-3/4" across head.  All parts work as intended.   Overall this 
shaving kit is in good condition and would make a nice addition to your collection.  The 
razor and case are in good condition.   There is no rust or brassing, top of flap reads "Valet."    


  The handle unscrews to be removed for ease of access to the underside of the razor for cleaning.
There is a release lever for the blade head, once opened there is a second release tab for the 
blade holder.  There is also a very interesting gear works on the side of the head for sharpening 
the blade using a strop.  Valet filed a lawsuit suit against the Gillette company on copyright 
infringement in 1930.  Gillette took over the company shortly after that.

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.
