lovely empire set sir..
awesome..beautiful examples sir..
cool president sir..
I am reposting this question. Think I put it in the wrong thread.
Gary or anyone with the expertise.
Came across this razor on EBay. Vendor was in the UK, seller described the razor as a gold rocket aristocrat. The patent # inside as you can see from my terrible photography is Brit Patent # 694093. The only other engraving is the Gillette logo and Made in England on the bottom of the baseplate. Do you know more about this razor? It’s a TTO. Thanks to anyone who can answer my question.
Enjoy your shaves,
it's s gold flaretip rocket in the wrong case..someone's home restored case..
Thanks so much, Gary! I suspect that things may not go together. Given that the blade bank is not correct, I suspect that the case is not as well. Oh well, it’s a nice razor. I need to sanitize it in shape with it. I’ve attached the views you asked for. Thank you so much for your generous spirit of assistance. Much appreciated! I just wanted to know what I have. Here are the images you asked for.
ok sir thank you..if you don't like it i would gladly dispose of it for you.. it was somebody's love though.its a 20s case as well..and again the gold flaretips are quite rare..
Appreciate it! Is it possible to get the correct case and blade bank. Would you possible have a picture of what it should look like? I gather gold rockets are somewhat rare. At least that's what the vendor said. But then again, I have trouble believing anything he said. Is the razor valuable (i.e. colletable?)
I have a 20's era Gillette. That might fit in with the case. Thanks so much, Gary.
Enjoy your shaves,
you may come across the proper case at some point..it wouldn't have a blade bank but would have a 50s blade dispenser possibly. will have to find a pic..most of these rockets were packaged differently..from paper to plastic..the gold one may have had a leatherette case..white maybe?will let you know..and yes..it's quite collectable even if it isn't..someone would like it..i do..
