1930s NEW Gillette Otto Roth Inc Stamped
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE! 
  
  Here we have a 1930s NEW Gillette Otto Roth Inc Stamped safety
razor, this vintage collectible has a thin common bar handle with 
Otto Roth Inc. stamped on the outside of the bottom blade plate, 
Made in U.S.A. and numbers. The razor is in very good
to mint condition. This razor was made after King camp Gillette
left the Gillette Safety Razor Company and Otto Roth assumed
control.

  This highly collectible vintage razor is sought after by many 
collectors and if lucky they find one that is in almost mint 
condition as this one is. This razor marks a turning point in the
Gillette Safety Razor Company which at this point in time is 
historical fact.  The razor has no bent or broken teeth, no 
scratching or gouging to the outside or inside of the top blade 
plate, the bottom blade plate is just as beautiful as the top.
The handle has no loss of color, scratches, gouges, damage to 
the knurling. It is an absolute collectors dream. Also included
is a box of Gillette NOS Blue Blades, the box has not been opened
but the original cellophane is a little bit worse for wear, also
included there is a Rubie DE collectible razor blade. On the back
of the unopened NOS blade envelope reads Otto Roth Inc. Newark 
N.J. U.S.A.

PRICE 125.00 OBO

The Otto Roth company made safety razors early in the last 
century and was in Germany (I'm not sure but I think in 
Berlin). 
  
One famous razor they made was the Rotbart Mond. They were in 
competition with Gillette then and Gillette decided to buy this 
factory in the 1920's.
After Gillette bought this factory they made rebranded Gillette 
safety razors with the Rotbart writing on them. 
  
They made safety razors until the seventies and the latest 
famous razor from Rotbart looks exactly like the Gillette Slim 
twist.  
  
Here is a sample of an early Rotbart Mond:

But I must say I've never heard about an Otto Roth made in USA, 
maybe a former owner combined some parts of a US. Gillette with a 
german Rotbart? 
  
BTW, Rotbart blades are still in production (see the blade 
reviews), good blades but at least simply rebranded Gillette blades 
from Procter & Gamble. 
The Otto Roth company made safety razors early in the last 
century and was in Germany (I'm not sure but I think in 
Berlin). Today Gillette is owned by Procter & Gamble.
