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.

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.
