1961 Gillette Aristocrat w Case and Blades


1961 Gillette Aristocrat w Case and Blades
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE! 

  After a decade long absence, the Aristocrat made a comeback in 1961 in the 
form of a gold-plated Slim Adjustable that came in an elongated hard plastic 
presentation case, and was produced until 1967 or 1968.  This model has the 
distinction of being the last all metal gold-plated razors that Gillette 
ever produced.  The razor and plastic case appear in very good+ condition.  
The outside of the case has marks from being moved around, but there are no 
cracks or breakage.

  The hinges of the razor case are intact and work flawlessly as they should.
Included with this absolutely 'hard to find' vintage kit is a package of 15 
NOS Gillette Super Stainless Steel Blades.  The inside of the razor case is 
in almost MINT condition with no rips or tares to the fabric and no damage
to the plastic holder or top inside of the case.

  Production date is G-3, 1961 3rd quarter, this was the first year of the 
Slim Adjustable Razors.  The razor is in very good+ condition.  The numbers 
are 100% black coloured. The TTO (twist to open) head opens and closes as it 
should, and closes tightly to hold the blade in place.  This great vintage 
razor is mechanicaly perfect.  The blade gap is parallel for perfect shaving.
The adjustment ring turns and clicks into each setting, adjusting the shave 
from quite mild to a medium-high aggressiveness.   
  
  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.
