1959 RARE Gold British Presentation Flare Tip Set

1959 RARE Gold British Presentation Flare Tip Set
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE! 
  
  Here we have a highly regarded and rarely seen 1959 Gold Plated British 
made flare tip presentation set. The plating and the clear lacquer protective 
finish have survived more than 50 years in great shape. The gold plating is 
in MINT condition, there is absolutely no loss at all. The TTO head opens 
perfectly and closes tightly and evenly as it was meant to do. This beautiful
collectible razor is a very effective closed guard shaver with great knurling 
on the handle. The razor feels great in the hand. It has a mild head design 
and decent heft of 59g. The handle is about 3 inches long. 

  This presentation model of the Gillette flare tip razor came in this classy 
and rare leather case, The instruction brochure for this razor is also 
included, something rarely seen with this set. The razor is in MINT condition, 
the case a little less so due to a few scuff marks as seen in the pictures. 
The case is a real beauty as is the entire set. Also included is a NOS
dispenser of 10 Gillette Blue Blades still in the Original box which has 
never been opened.

  1959 was a great year for Gillette's classy designs in the US and England. 
This is one of my favorites. Great knurling for grip on the handle, and 
twist to open mechanism makes it very easy to load a blade. On the inside of 
the blade compartment is stamped Brit. Pat. 694093. On the outside bottom of
the blade compartment there are the Roman numerals II. These Roman numerals,
(I, II or III) indicated the aggressiveness of the razor with I being the 
gentlest. This is a magnificent set that you will probably never see again.
Please be sure to look closely at the pictures, they are true representation
of this great collectible.
